Take a peek at Greta Eskridge’s Instagram account, and you might just see her shin-deep in a tide pool with her kids, or hanging out on top of a mountain.

It’s clear that Greta adores nature. But as a child, believe it or not, Greta didn’t spend a lot of time in nature. What did she do? She read about it.

Now as a mama of four, Greta shares those same books with her children.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • books that fuel a love of nature
  • how books transport us
  • and her tips for stress-free nature journaling with kids

Even if you don’t have a nature preserve in your back yard, this episode will help you instill a deep love of nature in your kids. The best part? Doing it through beautiful books.
