The Goodness of Rain
Developing an Ecological Identity in Young Children

Author(s): Ann Pelo (click on the author's name for more titles)

We must discover our place in the natural world. Together.

To nurture ecological identity in young children, we invite them into relationship with the world beyond walls and with the creatures that live there. We invite them into ethical thinking anchored by the compassion that comes from caring and engaged relationships. We invite them to come home to the Earth, and to live honorably in that home.

Join author Ann Pelo on her year-long journey as she nurtures the ecological identity of a toddler and discovers for herself what it means to live in relationship with the natural world…

…delighting in discovery and adventure

…developing dispositions and skills for being in the out-of-doors

…learning when to speak and when to be still

…knowing joy, grief, reverence, astonishment, and gladness

…embracing the comradeship of fellow explorers

When we turn towards the Earth with curiosity and sympathy, with humility and wonder, our lives fall into place — we fall into place. This is what it means to grow an ecological identity.
