Review:

One of the greatest gifts we can give children of any age is a deep kinship with the living world. And one of the best places to start is with this wonderful book. In Sharing Nature, Joseph Cornell offers a treasure trove of games and activities that tap into children's natural curiosity, imagination, and wonder. This is a delightful and indeed, essential guidebook for parents, teachers, and youth leaders.--Jean MacGregor, Environmental Educator, The Evergreen State College

Cornell s long-standing work and vision have nourished the roots of the emerging worldwide movement to reconnect children and nature.--Cheryl Charles, Past President and Co-Founder, Children & Nature Network"

Joseph Cornell brings to life his 'Flow Learning' teaching strategy in the 35th anniversary edition of Sharing Nature. This expanded volume reflects Cornell's years of experience and refinement in using his nature games to create highly enriching field trip learning experiences for the thousands of students we've taken outdoors to connect with the natural world. His keen insight into the dynamics of learning, no matter one's age, creates a more fruitful and lasting understanding of any nature topic.--Sue Eisaguirre, Founder & Executive Director NatureTrack Foundation

I have been using Joseph Cornell s 'Sharing Nature' activities with both children and adults for over thirty years. As a classroom teacher, environmental educator, and national park ranger, I often receive feedback, even years later, as to how important these experiences have been in people s lives. Now Joseph has combined his two books, Sharing Nature with Children and Sharing the Joy of Nature, along with additional activities, into one volume, with a fresh new format. This book should be an essential part of every teacher s, naturalist s, and parent s library. It is a treasure for those who strive to inspire children to enjoy and embrace the wonder of our natural world.--Frank Helling, U.S. National Park naturalist, storyteller, and educator"

The Sharing Nature approach and games not only reconnect us with nature, but also with the profound natural wisdom of our planetary ancestors.--Sky Lau, Founder, Gaia Association, Hong Kong

With his brilliant and innovative style of storytelling, Joseph Cornell has made nature education fun for learners. This book will be loved by students, teachers, and nature enthusiasts alike, in every part of the globe.--S.P. Yadav, Indian Forest Service, Assistant Secretary General, Global Tiger Forum

The book that infuses joy, direct experience, and love into environmental education.--Janet Carrier Ady, Senior Program and Policy Advisor, National Conservation Training Center, US Fish and Wildlife Service

I use the activities in this book with my university students (preservice teachers and naturalists in training) every semester. Why? Because it's accessible, fun, engaging, thoughtfully designed, and an excellent introduction to inquiry-based, hands-on, cooperative learning.--Rocky Rohwedder, Ph.D., Professor, Environmental Science, Sonoma State University

Cornell has devised ingenious nature-based games that . . . celebrate mystery, quiet attention, observation, and the possibility of revelation.--Richard Louv, author of "The Nature Principle," Chairman Emeritus, Children & Nature Network

Cornell's long-standing work and vision have nourished the roots of the emerging worldwide movement to reconnect children and nature.--Cheryl Charles, Past President and Co-Founder, Children & Nature Network
