Fanny & Alexander
The Nature of Play
A handbook of nature-based activities for all seasons.
Created by Delfina Aguilar, Founder of Fanny & Alexander
Containing 44 richly illustrated, hands-on activities, seasonal poems, interviews, recipes, and flora and fauna guides, The Nature of Play is an invitation to explore, discover, learn and play with nature, wherever you live, whatever the weather.
Delfina Aguilar is the founder of Fanny & Alexander, makers of wilfully analog toys (and now books) that offer a welcome antidote to our digital age, and to modern toys which only require children to sit passively before them.
Fanny & Alexander was founded on a fundamental desire to encourage children (and the adults who love them) to play a little more, and a little better – and The Nature of Play guides them to do just that together, whatever the weather. Designed to be a tool for learning as well as creating many moments of childhood wonder, the book is packed with simple, special ideas for enjoying the changing seasons.
