There is widespread concern that children are increasingly disconnected from nature. I have been exploring this issue in my academic work and in my capacity as a children’s book writer. Last year, I decided to write a picture book that celebrates the fact that we simply are nature and the result was You Are Stardust.

Yesterday, when I opened my email, I discovered a lovely gift from a singer/song writer in Oklahoma who is exploring the same themes of interconnectedness in his newest song, “Connected“.

It’s wonderful to witness ideas shifting form as they move between academia and  different people’s experiences and through a range of media.
