Raising Resilient Children - With a Little Help from Nature

Trouble knocked at the door, but hearing laughter, hurried away.
Benjamin Franklin

In his IPPY award winning book, Adventures in Risky Play, author Rusty Keeler helps educators support beneficial risky play in a way that works for each individual’s comfort level. He helps them see that appropriate risks are not dangerous. What feels risky and thrilling to a young child can (and must) also feel safe to the adult.

Richard Louv, author of Our Wild Calling and Last Child in the Woods, has this to say:

“Rusty Keeler’s terrific book will inspire parents and caregivers to raise courageous, resilient children and young adults—with a little help from nature.”
