The Living World is so special. It makes learning science fun with over 170 hands-on activities based on Penny BrownleeÕs theory about the 22 natural urges play. Each activity involves at least one of the natural play urges Ñ such as posting, collecting, connecting, elemental play. The book encourages children to see natureÕs treasures and recognise the natural beauty that surrounds us. Crucial for personal well-being, this can set children in good stead for later in life as it is good practice for living in the moment and appreciating the simple things.
