I agree with the other reviewer in saying this a fantastic book to have on "natural" childcare, geared to creating a creative, wholesome, and gentle childhood experience that is nature-based. Full of guidance and suggestions, John Thomson's informative text leads you through a child's changing world and needs as his sense of self grows. This books is an appropriate springboard for someone interested in a Montessori or Waldorf-based elementary education, or for a parent not interested in fancy plastic toys or TV but who wants to help their child explore the world through fingerpaint, the outdoors, blowing bubbles, and making their own doll with materials at hand, etc. Emphasis is on creative play.

Natural Childhood is a treasure of joyous photos and colorful pictures that reflects the joy of childhood, ready to inspire a new parent - or an old one for that matter!
