Reading Assignment

In the last two weeks I've had several conversations regarding kids, play, obesity, and horticulture therapy.

In response to all of these questions I propose a holiday reading assignment, Richard Louv's Last Child in the Woods.

Find it. Read it.  And I'll try to pull together a discussion group later in February or March.  Those participating might find a few continuing education hours thrown their way, too.
