Walking to school and nature

I was surprised last week to see on the cover of our local newspaper (Webster-Kirkwood Times) a picture of some students here joining in the celebration of the seventh annual Walk to School Week.  In an age where kids are less active than ever, it’s nice to see some families still enjoy walking.

I hope to have some more on this topic later in the week (after my mid-term) , as well as, on a book that I read over the summer called Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv. This book has sparked a recent movement to get kids back outside. There is a local group here in St. Louis that I hope to also have more information on soon. 

Sincerely-

Green Librarian
