Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

For green grandparents everywhere and the young lives they touch. --RICHARD LOUV, AUTHOR OF LAST CHILD IN THE WODS

Make leaf rubbings, blow jumbo bubbles, bake Moon Pizzas, create a firefly lantern. More than an activity book, CAMP GRANY is an interactivity book, filled with 130 projects that connect grandparents and grandchildren through nature--in the kitchen, the garden, and the art room.

Illustrated with evocative photographs and the author's watercolors, CAMP GRANY is a book about being adventurous, about being curious, about noticing and really seeing things--about instilling a lifelong sense of wonder. Please note: CAMP GRANY was previously sold under the title Toad Cottages & Shooting Stars.

I highly recommend them to everyone. These are a collection of old play ideas, outdoor discoveries, woodsy crafts, and even some recipes that help us meditate on the forgotten luxury of simple living. Many of the activities will take you through the types of outdoor play that you may have forgotten since becoming a curmudgeonly old adult. Lovejoy makes Fairies live again and Mudpies seem like culinary masterpieces. There are various suggestions about how to create a cozy, child-friendly oasis within your home - storage, keeping dress in a large trunk, keeping a large basket full of books in each room, bringing nature indoors. The illustrations throughout these books are so charming watercolor sketches reminiscent of Beatrix Potter, which is perfectly suited to the contents of the books.

   Do not bother
There is almost zero in this book that would not know some one granny's age. If you lived all your life in a city, you might appreciate some of the tips, I suppose. Cannot recommend. Not a new bit of info for my use. I felt that I had wasted my money.
   Bring “Lovejoy” to your grands!
The inspiration for spending time with the grands is Love ''! And brings joy '' in the fact that all activities do not include technology, but life skills and memories that are long lasting! Sharon's name says it all... Lovejoy!
   GREEN things to do
This has lots of ideas, but be aware that it is primarily about fun with nature, though it does cover old-fashioned ideas I have forgotten like playing with pipe cleaners!
   Enchanting book!
So written so beautifully. Grandchildren have done incredible things for Grandma to do with grandchildren.
   great book to help create precious memories with little ones.
Lots of excellent activities and ideas to promote quality time with my grandchildren. Sharon Lovejoy reminds me how to think again like a child and see the world through their eyes, sadly something long forgotten for me.
