Maybe someone should send the Maniac of the White House a copy for bed-time reading - it would hopefully get him off Twitter and his inanities to the World for a short period.

I didn't know that. I'll have to look it up.

I read this book in the mid-60s, not long after it was published. It was powerful and motivating. She wrote another book that I treasure. It's called "The Sense of Wonder," and it's all about introducing children to nature when they are very young. Unfortunately too many of us are divorced from nature.
