Key issues raised by the book include the different cultural constructs of childhood and education, and how these affect the provision for learning in natural environments. Students, practitioners and scholars in early childhood and wider education will find the text a useful reference. There are points for practice, lucid case studies and useful lists for further reading, which may be difficult to find elsewhere; being able to access international authors and their references in one book is useful. -- Mel McCree, Nature Nurseries, Bristol, UK
