'Despite the variety of contributors and their projects, the editor has achieved a consistence of tone and style in the writing, which is engaging and accessible'
-Valerie Huggins, Early Years
'[The editors] lead a mystery tour of learning in nature and nature in learning. I particularly delighted in the account of the practicalities of urban comprehensive pupils weaving together saplings along a trail as part of their 'Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning'. This book turns a dry Faculty of Public Health report green' -
Times Higher Education
'Yet again Sara has managed to capture the essence of Forest School. The varied case studies explore how the Forest School ethos applies across a wide range of clients, and demonstrate precisely why so many talented and enlightened practitioners are using Forest School with learners, especially those who don't fit in with the constraints of mainstream education' -
Susannah Podmore, FEI Coordinator, Forestry Commission England
"Knight offers a needed addition to scholarship on outdoor and hybrid environmental curriculum, with a keen modeling accommodation for diverse and special-needs learners. The book's strength is that it provides a methodology for implementation of outdoor experiential education curriculum and assessment in independent and charter schools." (L.H. Taylor Jr. CHOICE Magazine 2012-09-01)

This book certainly lived up to my expectations! It is divided into different chapters each written by someone who has experienced leading Early years,SEN and teenagers/adults all of which interest me professionally and personally.
This is exactly what I wanted to read about! I could read case studies and form my own opinions from these experiences covering all ages that I personally come into contact with. (Early years placements and FE students ranging from level 1 - 3).
I quickly realised that I was reading something that completely supported my own thinking but up until recently had not given it a title or direction......
I have only just finished the book after reading it from cover to cover this weekend while camping in a field with my children.. so will need time to process some of my thoughts.. but feel mixed emotions as although I understand the benefits I may need to persuade my colleaques to realise that nature can support nurture...
For me it was like coming home and I agree with the statement on the back cover "..will be enthused and inspired by this book"....It worked for me!
Definitely worth buying.
