“This interview was a blast for me. Wendolyn Bird is an expert in nature connection for young children and a delight to talk to. Jon Young also weighs in with wisdom shared from his visits with the Kalahari Bushmen.”
In this fun interview, Tania chats with Wendolyn about the power of nature for people of all ages and backgrounds, and how growing up connected to nature can have profound impacts on your children’s learning and development of positive relationships with the self, others, their care providers and the natural world. Wendolyn shares simple ways that play and nature can facilitate problem solving, deductive reasoning and healthy self-esteem; and how tapping into your own ‘inner child’ can help you understand the world through the eyes of your children – a world of awe, wonder, imagination and curiosity.
