    The founder of website Earlyspace, with a background in both landscape design and early childhood education, Striniste shares her passion for creating outdoor spaces that connect children with nature in her first book. Beautifully illustrated chapters walk readers through the essential steps of creating their own natural playscapes, no matter the environment. Striniste begins with arranging spaces through welcoming entryways and winding pathways before sharing suggestions for inviting in nature with native plants and wildlife-friendly spaces, offering plentiful design choices along the way. With Striniste's guidance, natural playscapes can awaken the senses, challenge bodies, stir imagination, build confidence, and create comfort for all ages. If a complete redesign is too overwhelming, Strinsite includes 15 smaller hands-on projects to get started. Adults and children will delight in working together to build creations like hillside slides, mosaic streams, insect hotels, a living willow tunnel, and even a bamboo bower. Nature Play at Home is sure to inspire readers to take action in their backyards and encourage creative play in nature for years to come. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
