Get Your Boots On was written by a teenager for teenagers, with lots of ideas to help get outside and closer to nature.
I’ve written before about how photography can help engage kids with getting outside, especially as they get older.
It certainly has for our kids, and photography has a major impact on teenager Alex White, who has turned his skill and passion for wildlife photography into the book Get Your Boots On to encourage other teenagers to get outside and appreciate nature.
This is a fantastic achievement and even has the foreword written by Chris Packham.
The book is not too big to put teenagers off, and is of course, full of excellent wildlife photos.
It covers a wide variety of topics, from what to see and when, where to go, what gear to take, and even where to meet other teenagers that share the same interests in nature.
As well as lots of practical advice, the book contains contributions from many people involved with UK wildlife, from both older people and those of Alex’s generation. Plus, running through the book, is Alex’s blog extracts, which gives a personal narrative to his journey.
This book is ideal if you have teenagers – especially if they enjoy nature, animals, the outdoors, or photography.
However, it’s a very accessible book whatever your age, so if the above applies to you too, then it’s well worth a read 🙂
