Jay Griffiths’ Kith explores what we can learn from indigenous cultures to reverse current trends of unhappiness and consumer dependencies. Rich, and poetically composed from the heart, Kith reignites the romance of childhood through a medley of case studies, stories, anthroplogy snippets, statistics, poetry, fairytales and news commentary; nourishing stuff.
David Sobel’s Beyond Ecophobia makes a clear and strong case for age appropriate environmental education, with helpful analysis of children’s natural interests at different developmental stages, and a stark warning not to burden young children with issues of global environmental destruction.
This hefty book is well worth the effort, it's packed with enlightening case studies, playwork concepts and fresh ideas. This book really helped me understand the why of what I do, to see that play is as essential to our society as it is to childhood. This book has helped me learn to step back with confidence and trust children to find their own way to make sense of the world.
