As I read the first few chapters, I was extremely pleased with the information given regarding how much outdoor leaders are needed. Statistics are presented regarding the extensive use of electronics by today's children. The premise is to demonstrate how these same children sorely need to be outdoors being active instead of spending so much of their day using electronic devices to placate them. Whatever the reasons parents gave for allowing youngsters access to these "toys", the reason I found most enticing, was that the parents themselves no longer were comfortable being outdoors!
The author gives examples of many fun, interesting and inexpensive activities for families to enjoy the outdoors. I didn't read the entire book, but rather skipped around. I intend to purchase a copy for myself because it seems to be a valuable resource for parents as well as adults who work with youth.
