Sharing Nature with Children sold more than half a million copies and sparked a worldwide revolution in nature education. Now that classic has been rewritten, with added new activities—and combined with Sharing Nature with Children II (a treasury of some of Joseph's best-loved nature games for children and adults) in one complete volume: Sharing Nature.

Upon its release, Sharing Nature quickly received six prestigious awards:
Winner, Silver Nautilus Award in the Animals & Nature category
Winner, Grand Prize: Indie Book Awards in the Non-Fiction category
Winner, Indie Book Award in the Science/Nature/Environment category
Winner, Indie Book Award in the Parenting/Family category

Winner, Green Book Festival Award in the How-To category

Shortlisted, 2016 Green Earth Book Award in the Young Adult Nonfiction category
Finalist, 2016 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award in the Nature category

Not just a book, this is a powerful approach to nature education. Fans of the original work will be excited by this new version of their beloved nature handbook, which incorporates the author's latest insights. (Cornell drew upon a wealth of experience to significantly revise and expand this book.) New readers—including outdoor enthusiasts of all types and nature-based schools and instructors—will be enthralled by this phenomenal teaching tool.

Essential, easy to use,
Sharing Nature is nature awareness made simple. It makes experiencing nature fun. An extraordinary resource for anyone who would like to get in touch with the land, trees, and mountains. This book is a treasure trove of games and activities that tap into our natural curiosity, imagination, and wonder. Give a friend or a child an experience of Nature and wildlife that he will remember the rest of his life.

Sharing Nature takes readers beyond their intellects and into their hearts, where true understanding and appreciation take place. The wildly popular nature activities in this book arouse a sense of mystery, and engender quiet attention, observation, and the possibility of revelation.

New nature games—and old favorites—and Cornell's typically insightful commentary makes this new and quintessential version of this special classic even more valuable to nature enthusiasts worldwide. In page after page of innovative activities, Cornell's unique blend of knowledge and warmth creates a contagious atmosphere for learning. Enjoy the color interior with 250 photos offering comprehensive easy-to-follow instructions.

The Sharing Nature movement has expanded to countries all over the globe. Cornell and his work have been recommended by the Boy Scouts of America, the American Camping Association, the National Audubon Society, Japan's national school system, and many others.

Cornell also introduces his remarkable technique of Flow Learning, showing how to match nature activities to the interest and energy levels of participants and children, and to organize them in a way that works, placing them in thematic sequence to ensure a genuinely uplifting experience.
