The research reveals that children in Britain visit outdoor spaces an average of three times a week, with four out of five parents (80%) admitting they would like their child to spend more time outside.
When it comes to barriers to children spending time outdoors, the top reason given by parents was that they don’t have time to take their children to the park.
As a result, classic outdoor skills children often learn in the park could be on the decline, with the research indicating that over a third (34%) of children have never learnt to ride a bike, and almost half (49%) have never climbed a tree.
Green Bean At The Park is a fun-filled story with colourful illustrations, making it ideal for early readers!
