Anna recommends these 2 interesting books to reconnect you & your family with nature ….
Dancing with Bees, by Brigit Strawbridge Howard
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2020 WAINWRIGHT PRIZE.
A naturalist’s passionate dive into the lives of bees (of all stripes)—and the natural world in her own backyard.
Here’s a YouTube video of the authors garden, very inspirational…… https://youtu.be/w7dIZ7e2lDA
Wild Child by Patrick Barkham
“In this timely and personal book, celebrated nature writer Patrick Barkham draws on his own experience as a parent and a forest school volunteer to explore the relationship between children and nature. Unfolding over the course of a year of snowsuits, muddy wellies, and sunhats, Wild Child is both an intimate story of children finding their place in natural world, and a celebration of the delight we can all find in even modest patches of green.” Taken from Granta Publishing website.
