The book is usefully split up into 11 main chapters and further easily digested sub-headings. In particular the format of the activities is helpful and accessible, split into three parts: Ready (the underlying concept), Get set (what equipment and materials you need to prepare) and Go!Read more ›
I'm a recently qualified Forest School practitioner and must tell you what a valuable resource your book has been to me over the past year.
It all makes so much sense, every session I have used it to plan from has ended up being both inspirational to myself and my groups. So much so that I have planned a whole years programme from Early Years up to year Four around it.
Many thanks for passing your knowledge on in such a lovely way.
The highest recommendation I have for this book is that all my outdoor learning friends have deep 'book envy' when I show them my copy and many have gone on to buy it themselves rather than wait for me to lend it. (Which is good as I will be returning to it again and again and am reluctant to lend.)
This is a fantastic book on so many levels; educational, practical, spiritual. It is easy to engage with at which ever level is most comfortable for you. Chris Holland writes an 'idiot's guide' to activities without patronising. The deeper meaning of the activity is explained so that the learning or well-being needs being addressed are clear. He also generously gives recommendations to other worthwhile publications.
The book will satisfy outdoor learning practitioners at all levels of experience and all delivering to all stages. Go buy it and see for yourself!
As a practical handbook it is outstanding, with all the activities laid out in a clever 'ready, get set, go' format which encourages you to go out and get started straightaway. Often there's an additional paragraph detailing things which might happen so that you can tailor the activity to your own situation. When you get the time, I also recommend that you start at the beginning and read it right through to the end. That way you will pick up on Chris Holland's deep love and understanding of the subject which might encourage you to look at and readjust your own way of working, just as I have.
What about the pictures? It's true that the illustrations in the first edition were poorly presented and unclear. That problem has now been resolved, and in the 2nd edition they are clear and really practically useful. Yes they are still in black and white, but if this was a glossy colour production, the book would probably live on your bookshelf, not in your rucksack which is a much better place for it to be.
