Abstract

This “Companion” to the Childhoodnature Handbook is a co-creation between children, young people, and adults, curated by four academics and five graduate students to bring children and young people’s voices to the foreground. The Companion disrupts conventional academic publishing to present an exceptional aesthetic work of children and young people’s creative, sensory, and imaginative musings that reflect their chosen modes of engagement with their childhoodnature. The compositions of childhoodnature experiences within this section enable the reader to become “companions” with the children and young people in sensing, feeling, and thinking of the world a little bit differently.
