This book certainly deserves 5 stars. Juliet has anticipated any doubts you might have about the efficacy of outdoor learning and illustrates with clear examples how to get out there with confidence. What I like most about this book is that she doesn't gloss over the difficulties. She faces them head on, acknowledging the fears and exploring solutions.Outdoor learning demands a high level of skill and commitment and opens a whole other world of being with children.Juliet looks at this world alongside the reader, encouraging a creative approach to the curriculum. In thinking for oneself the reader is also invited to consider their own professional development and needs. A reciprocal learning process is advocated here between children and adults, people and their environment. This book is a must for everyone who works with children.
A lovely resource to have on hand. I found it useful to show other colleagues who were not as keen on outside learning as me that small manageable tasks were just as valid as massive den building, tree swinging activities and just as valuable to the children. Easy to understand not full of educational theory but supported by it. I am not Early Years trained but have come into it over the years and have found this book full of little, inexpensive tips for resources and ideas and has validated some of things I have already instigated in my setting. A good read too.
