Description

In this beautifully illustrated journal, author and photographer Margaret Loescher chronicles the year she spent leading an outdoor parent-and-child group in Lincolnshire, England. Reflections on the changing seasons and the relationship between human beings and the natural world are accompanied by crafts, poems, and songs appropriate to each time of year.

Her creative and joyful explorations can inspire each of us to find a way to experience nature with children in our own environment.

Author

Margaret Loescher is a writer of fiction and non-fiction and a mother of two young daughters. Sometimes these roles support one another and often times they challenge one another; they both sustain her. She has worked as a Steiner-Waldorf kindergarten assistant and now leads 'Woodmice', an outdoor parent-and-child group in a local nature reserve. A storyteller at home, in schools and in the woods, she lives with her husband and children in Cambridge, England.
