I felt like this book was repetitive. The author used the same points over, and over. And over. The book could have been down to a handful of well-written blog posts.
*I do agree that getting our kids out in nature is really, really important, BUT this book takes the view that taking them outside is some kind of magical panacea that will heal all our issues.
*I picked the book up hoping for some practical guidance (it has a chapter devoted specifically to babies being outside and one for getting kids who are less imaginative to play). That was a disappointment. For example, the advice on babies? Don't panic about germs, let them chew on the stick they find, and just keep an eye on what they put in their mouth. Um? Really? This is Ten Dollar advice?
Anyway, I'm sorry, I usually don't like to bash books. I was just bummed.
