ADVENTURE, PLAY, PEACE--
Young children are mud pie makers, fort builders and rock stackers. That is, they’re scientists, artists, mathematicians, and engineers learning about the world around them. Join the MRV Libraries and Four Winds Nature Institute to explore nurturing your young learners by being outside together. We’ll be reading the book “Adventure, Play, Peace” by Nancy MacPhee Bower and sharing strategies for creating peaceful family communities that foster children’s curiosity, compassion and confidence.
