Format: Paperback
At first hold 'I Love My World' seems like a slim volume, and certainly slips comfortably into the hands. Deceptively, however, it comprises a fulsome 200 pages and manages to cover an extensive array of topics drawn from bushcraft, outdoor education and environmental play. In fact, it's really two books neatly rolled into one: a wide-ranging compendium of activity ideas for creatively teaching, mentoring and playing with children in the great outdoors, alongside words of gently distilled wisdom about how we can each live in closer harmony with the natural world. It succeeds in engaging at both levels. As a children's work practitioner, I immediately wanted to stuff the book in my coat pocket and head out into the woods to try out some of the activities for myself. There's plenty of new material that caught my eye and tickled my enthusiasm: Follow that log, Fairy plates, Elephant walk and Tribal wheel maps just for starters. But as I've dippped into the book again and again, it's the knowledge, ethos and attitude of the author that really shines through. Here is someone that genuinely believes in the value of what he does - sharing the joys and bounty of nature - and can communicate this with the both extensive first-hand experience of the wild and with the freshness of someone who understands children and their inherent playfulness. He uses some lovely language through the book too, phrases such as 'lost-proofing', that describe important concepts with appealing good-humour.

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!

Dear Chris

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.

Diane

A worth-while buy! A great balance of practical guides, activities, ideas..with the energy and inspiration which is so often required to actually get you outside trying them. It is work, or perhaps I should say play, like this that will help those growing up now to know where they fit into their world and society. There are activities to cover passions of any child (or adult) by tapping into many creative outlets.

I Love My World
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!

A very helpful book for teachers and outdoor educators; the games and activities are described clearly and generally need a minimum of equipment beyond a suitable outdoor environment and easily available resources. Other people have commented on the poor quality pictures - colour would have been better, but that would doubtless have pushed up the cost. The text is excellent and written with real passion by Chris Holland, who has quite clearly used the activities himself. Whilst several of the games were known to me already, there was enough new stuff to make it a very worthwhile purchase. I particularly like the accessible way in which it is written - some Forest School books create a bit of a precious myth around taking children outside to learn; it should really be about getting out there and exploring and learning through all your senses - Chris Holland makes it exactly that.

I bought this bought as I am training to be a Forest School Practitioner.
The book is very informative and the way the activities are set out will make them very easy to apply to Forest School sessions.

The major letdown of this book, as other reviewers have said, it the diabolical print quality of the images, which renders them practically useless. A colleague who was reading the book over my shoulder commented on how dated the book looked.

For the price of the book, I would have expected better quality images.

I would rate it 4 out of 5 for the content but 1 of of 5 for the print quality
