MEDIA REVIEWS
'Knight again offers a readily accessible publication style for forest preschool and school practitioners; she effectively weaves together case studies, practical insights and theory to create an engaging and informative reference. A new chapter highlights the importance of working with parents and carers and useful updates responding to the revised Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFSC) are included'
-Dr Sue Elliott, Senior Lecturer Early Childhood Education, School of Education, Australian Catholic University

Sara provides evidence-based research as well as practical ideas through case studies. The book also shares the importance of being respectful of the environment, about keeping ourselves safe and changing attitudes about outdoor play to make it a priority in the early childhood curriculum. -- Ros Cornish * Early Childhood Australia *
