Non-fiction books that challenged my perspective, taught me new ideas and inspired me to make changes in my own life or in our family. 

Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder (Updated, Expanded)

Richard Louv

$16.95 $15.59

At first glance, you'd think it's just a parenting book about nature. However, in reality, this book transformed the way *I* view nature and how important it is to me. Lots of research but not too heady.

The Lifegiving Home: Creating a Place of Belonging and Becoming

Sarah Clarkson and Sally Clarkson

$15.99 $14.71

At Home in the World: Reflections on Belonging While Wandering the Globe

Tsh Oxenreider

$24.99 $22.49

A terrific memoir that transported me across the globe while also encouraging me to instill a global worldview in my own life (and in my children's, too). Inspirational & relateable.

There's No Such Thing as Bad Weather: A Scandinavian Mom's Secrets for Raising Healthy, Resilient, and Confident Kids (from Friluftsliv to Hygge)

Linda Åkeson McGurk

$17.00 $15.64

By far my favorite book about kids & nature. We've adopted many of these principles in our own family.
