Editorial Reviews

Review

“Richard Louv's Vitamin N should find its place in the list of essential vitamins! If we stress a connection to the natural environment . . . we can lessen the lifelong effects of a stressful childhood, including depression, obesity, behavior problems, drug use, and risk-taking behavior.” —Mary Brown, MD, past board member of the American Academy of Pediatrics

Vitamin N (‘N’ is for nature) is everything the worried parent needs...The accessibility of Louv’s writing is what truly shines, and his enthusiasm, so evident in earlier works, is on overdrive here. Anyone who works with children will embrace this title; families will be thrilled by its offerings. This is, without question, another shot out of the park for nature-advocate Louv.” Colleen Mondor for Booklist, starred review
 
“Louv (The Nature Principle) proclaims the many advantages of reconnecting with nature, both for children and adults, in an insightful and practical guide chock full of inspirational advice... Issuing an imperative that everyone should heed, this important new book provides the tools to reclaim the wonders and health benefits of nature.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Balancing the needs of time-stressed families with activities that appeal to different cultural backgrounds, and those that require organization as well as encourage independence, Louv strikes gold again… Louv has become a national leader in advocating for kids to connect with nature. His macrovision of ecological health speaks beyond the benefits of youngsters getting dirty. Essential for all collections.”—Library Journal, Starred Review

“Both parents and teachers will find this book invaluable. Louv has provided a thoughtful and practical guide to establishing and ensuring a successful relationship between children and the outdoors.” —National Science Teachers Association

“A truly engaging book, this resource is an excellent how to guide for getting stu­dents and families out in nature.”Green TeacherMagazine

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book of Ideas (Good ones!!)
By Screenfree Parenting on April 29, 2016
This is not a traditional book, rather it is a book of ideas; jumping off points to have more fun in nature. It operates somewhat like a field guide for having fun in nature for the newly initiated and long-time lovers alike. It definitely helped me move out of my nature rut, as if there is such a thing. The book is packed with over 500 different activities organized into sections. It's easy to skip stuff you aren't interested in and find what you are looking for. I tried eight different activities in one week with my one-year-old and four-year-old and we all had a blast! It was definitely worth the money. I plan to come back to the book again and again. I have it all tabbed up as there are tons of activities I want to try as my children get older. There is a whole section on outdoor games from different countries that I loved. But, my children are a little young for them right now. If you have any interaction with children (as a parent, grandparent, teacher, babysitter), I highly recommend this book.
