"The great thing about this book is the way it follows a primary school throughout a whole year of outdoor exploration - it's a far cry from the idea that the outdoors is only for fine weather. This essential guide shows how to encourage children's learning and support their development through year-round outdoor exploration; the really importance message that comes across is how much everyone involved enjoys the activities, children and adults." - Sarah Brew, Parents in Touch

"What a great book if you are looking for step by step guidance around setting up an outdoor site [...] Practical, tried and tested tips for activities throughout the year are shared in an accessible way. Helen Bilton's books on outdoor learning will be known to many of you and this book continues her excellence in the field." - Martine Horvath, EYE
