I bought this book as a resource to help me gain more information about teaching the Forest School ethos to my college students, both in the classroom and on their early years placements. I also hoped it would contain enough information to ignite my dream of setting up my own business and enable me to use my recent purchase of woodland (which I purchased after researching the benefits of Forest Schools for a lesson to college students)with my family.
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!

The book itself is amazing but the quality was not as described by the seller so I was dissapointed.

Really informative look at lots of different aspects of Forest School. Some inspiring examples of good practice & encourages reflection. Would have been 5 stars but for the fact that one or two chapters weren't as well written/thought out as all the rest.
Definitely worth buying.
