Why Kids Need to Engage Wild-ness
Cressida Cowell (@CressidaCowell), the author and illustrator of the “How to Train Your Dragon” and “The Wizards of Once” series of children’s books, shares vivid wild images of her childhood and asks important questions about the wild experiences of children today.
From The New York Times:
I Had a Gloriously Wild Childhood. That’s Why I Wrote ‘How to Train Your Dragon.’ We must give children the opportunity to interact with the wilderness, so that they learn to preserve the natural world.
