Full disclosure: I am an @stevenrinella superfan. Going all the way back to his pre-fatherhood early work, and continuing through today, reading his books, watching his shows, listening to his podcasts, and I even met the man in person once.

In his most recent release, Outdoor Kids in an Inside World, the fellow native Michigander once again brings his signature flavor of direct yet nuanced articulation of maintaining a practically biophiliac lifestyle. With his mountain-man-meets-Hemingway persona, Steve prioritizes a connection with nature as the main thrust for his day-to-day life. He wrote this book as a result of becoming a father of 3 over the last decade and quickly recognizing that even for an avid outdoorsman, getting children away from the living room and bedrooms, where technology abounds, outside and engaged with the natural world presents a list of challenges that grows longer with every new device, video game, and app update.

Steve takes you step by step through various levels of introducing children to interactions that help bridge the ever-expanding gap that accompanies industrialized first-world life. A dislocation wherein there has occurred an extinction of sorts, between people and our connection with nature. Interactions that, until only fairly recently in terms of human history, were a requirement for basic survival. He covers every barrier - conquering fears, tolerance for dirt, getting comfortable being uncomfortable, grappling with the possibility of failure as well as the reality of life and death and the true cost of how we obtain food. All geared towards safe and sustainable interactions with the outdoors. Steve understands what all of us as parents are chasing - to raise independent, knowledgeable, and confident children. Something as simple as starting a vegetable garden (Chapter 4: Tending the Soil) installs in kids a sense of ownership and responsibility, rewarding satisfaction in the cultivation of their own food, while also introducing them to the realities of life’s impermanence and frailty.

This book covers it all! Highly recommend to all parents who want to get their kids off the screens and in to the woods.
