'Helen Bilton's enthusiasm for her subject is evident throughout this book and it is obvious that not only is she a source of inspiration for present and future practitioners in this field, but much of her book is based on solid practical experience.' - E-scape

'This book is "a must read book" for any practitioners in early years education.' -Customer Review on Amazon

'This third edition of Outdoor Learning in the Early Years reaffirms the fundamental tenets that outdoor learning needs to be well-organised and managed in line with what we know about the best practices of teaching and learning; but it also extends our understanding of what best practice actually consists of ... [This book] provides such a wealth of ideas that no-one could resist going outside and examining the children's outdoor area with a critical eye! I recommend this book to all engaged in working and living with young children - parents, carers and teachers.' - Gifted Education International
