About this product
- DescriptionIntroduce children to the magic of using herbs for healing, cooking, and nature crafts and inspire a lifelong interest in the natural world. - Designed especially for children ages five to ten. - A hands-on book for children, filled with fun, easy-to-follow activities. <i>Walking the World in Wonder</i> covers the medicinal and magical uses of sixty-seven common herbs. Each herb playfully introduces itself and talks about its habitat and many uses. With fun, easy-to-follow activities, herbalist Ellen Evert Hopman teaches children basic herbal skills and invites them to make a sunflower seed mosaic, sew a catnip-filled mouse, and dig for Jerusalem artichoke roots. The book also includes simple recipes that children can use, with adult supervision, to treat mir ailments--peppermint tea to soothe a troubled tummy or horse chestnut salve to heal a scraped knee. Children gain a sense of self-sufficiency and awe for the earth's treasures by eating wild nettle greens, sprinkling a sandwich with nasturtium flowers, making strawberry honey, and learning to season food with dill they've gathered themselves. Parents and teachers will appreciate how these earth-centered activities are placed within a broader social and environmental context. Sixty-seven full-color photographs enable children, parents, and teachers to identify these herbs during walks and field trips. <i>Walking the World in Wonder</i> gives children a direct and joyous experience of their connection to the natural world and inspires a lifelong interest in their own health and that of the planet.
