Communing with nature
The Sense of Wonder (1965), by Rachel Carson, is a beautiful meditation on the outdoors…
“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.”
Also, there is the documentary A Sense of Wonder - two interviews with Carson during the last year of her life.
