The Child In Nature
Maria Montessori And Helen Keller
“There must be provision for the child to have contact with nature; to understand and appreciate the order, the harmony and the beauty in nature.”
“There is no description, no image in any book that is capable of replacing the sight of real trees, and all life to be found around them, in a real forest.
Something emanates from those trees which speaks to the soul, something no book, no museum is capable of giving.”
_ Maria Montessori
“What a joy it is to feel the soft, springy earth under my feet once more, to follow the grassy roads that lead to ferny brooks where I can bathe my fingers in a cataract of rippling notes, or to clamber over a stone wall into fields that tumble and roll and climb in riotous gladness.”
_ Helen Keller
