'Helen Bilton's enthusiasm for her subject is evident throughout this book and it is obvious that not only is she a source of inspiration for present and future practitioners in this field, but much of her book is based on solid practical experience.' – E-scape
'This book is "a must read book" for any practitioners in early years education.' –Customer Review on Amazon
'This third edition of Outdoor Learning in the Early Years reaffirms the fundamental tenets that outdoor learning needs to be well-organised and managed in line with what we know about the best practices of teaching and learning; but it also extends our understanding of what best practice actually consists of ... [This book] provides such a wealth of ideas that no-one could resist going outside and examining the children’s outdoor area with a critical eye! I recommend this book to all engaged in working and living with young children – parents, carers and teachers.' – Gifted Education International
