These books and activities can be used at home, in a camp setting, in a group setting, or anywhere children explore their worlds. The intent is to have children interact with the natural world. The activities are presented to encourage them to observe nature and the people and circumstances around them. It is hoped that children will start to observe their surroundings, to experience the world from a little different perspective, and to gain insight into themselves.
Hopefully, all participants will interact with their natural world through participating in these activities. In this way, and through the conversations with the adults who are working with them, the participants will be introduced to the concept of seeing miracles everywhere in everything.
