FOR ARGUMENTíS SAKE

Children are more disconnected from nature than ever before. Many prefer to play inside with electronic games and TV, and many parents prefer it too, feeling it is safer for them to be in the house. Child advocate Louv offers a passionate plea to return children to the natural world in this eye-opening book. He reveals that wonderful things can happen when a child experiences the outdoors, including longer attention spans, compassion, and a deeper connection to family. A wonderful, deeply felt call to change that all parents should heed.

LAST CHILD IN THE WOODS: SAVING OUR CHILDREN FROM NATURE-DEFICIT DISORDER, by Richard Louv (Algonquin, 2005)

Doesn't sound like something I'd go out of my way to pick up, but it does sound like it could be good. I guess I'd have to flip through it to determine for sure if was worth giving a try.
