Synopsis: A fun, informative guide to safely foraging with kids—featuring beautiful illustrations, plant facts and profiles, and 50 family projects for making the most of your wild edibles
In today’s world of increasingly sedentary lifestyles and a growing detachment from the food that we eat, it has never been more important to encourage children to put down their screens, get outside, and engage with the natural world around them. Foraging with Kids is a fun, practical book for parents and their children that encourages families to interact with their environment and gain a practical understanding of the natural world through exploration and play.
Featuring projects based around 50 easy-to-identify plants common in parks, forests, and hedgerows worldwide, Foraging with Kids makes the challenge of discovering functional flora just as achievable to those who live in the city as in the countryside. Once they have foraged their plants, children will be amazed by the diverse practical uses of their discoveries—from making soap from conkers or setting a delicious egg-free custard with plantain, to stopping minor cuts from bleeding with hedge woundwort. Children will take great pride in seeing their gatherings forming part of the family meal, and parents will be amazed at how even the most vegetable-averse child will develop an enthusiastic appetite for a meal that they have contributed to.
Featuring beautiful hand drawings, essential information on plant facts and identification, and a diverse range of engaging family projects, this is the perfect book for anyone who wants their children to get outside, connect with nature, and have a lot of fun in the process.
