'For practical activities and inspiration for your outdoor area covering all aspects of learning, get this book - it is just brilliant. The first edition was popular, and this fully revised and updated second edition has everything a practitioner could need to take learning into outdoor environments, whether you are an experienced outdoor convert, a young practitioner starting out on a career, or a student looking forward to their first placement.' - Martine Horvath, Early Years Educator Magazine
