Coyote's Guide to Connecting with Nature
by Jon Young, Ellen Haas, and Evan McGown
Foreword by Richard Louv
It's been hailed by Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, as "good medicine for nature-deficit disorder." The first edition quickly became the essential guidebook for mentors, parents, teachers, camp directors, and others wanting fun and exciting ways to connect children (and adults!) with nature.
Written by Jon Young, Ellen Haas, and Evan McGown, the second edition of Coyote's Guide to Connecting with Nature is an even more valuable resource for reconnecting people to the natural world.
Based on feedback from nature mentors and educators around the world, the second edition is not only more comprehensive - it's grown from 408 to 548 pages - but it's much easier to use, with beautiful full color photographs, a comprehensive index, and color codes that link the principles and activities for easier navigation.
Coyote mentoring is a method of learning that has been refined over thousands of years, based on instilling the need-to-know. Coyote's Guide to Connecting with Nature reveals this approach and what happens to student and teacher during the mentoring process. Strategies like questioning, storytelling, tracking, mapping, and practicing survival skills will inspire student curiosity and encourage self-sufficiency. Background information will help parents, teachers and others feel more confident in introducing children to new ways of experiencing and learning about the natural world..
