Outside In

This engaging picture book, with detailed illustrations, explores how humans have been separated from nature for some time, as shown by a young child who interacts with nature at a distance – from inside her house or car. Finally, the child steps outside and experiences nature firsthand. The book reminds students of the impact nature has on our everyday lives and how humans and nature connect, for example, through the materials we wear or that make up our houses, the cycles of day and night, the weather, and the food we eat. A useful resource to help students connect to nature, spark interest in outdoor learning, and reinforce the value of nature education.
