From the publisher

The ultimate handbook for raising wilder, happier, muddier, more resilient kids - whatever the weather and wherever you live.

In the last few years parents everywhere have realised how crucial the freedom of the outside world is, not only for their kids' wellbeing, but the whole family's. They've also realised, however, that it's not always that easy.

That's where this book comes in. Taking you through different environments and activities to explore, from minibeasts in the garden and pond dipping all the way through to beach Olympics and sea swimming (via rainy days, wild woods and river exploration), there are ideas small and big for all ages that will get them - and you - more engaged and involved with nature, and the wildlife in it.

With contributions from;

Bear Grylls on embracing adventure,
Ed Stafford on flirting with danger ,
Sir Chris Hoy on riding bikes,
Judy Murray on rainy day kitchen games,
Michaela Strachan on creative word games,
Gordon Buchanan on toasting marshmallows,
Caroline Lucas on protecting the planet,
Wayne Bridge on garden football,

and many more, Wildlings is a map to a more adventurous, wilder future.
