"A Year of Forest School has the same lovely accessible
style that our Forest School practitioners appreciate about Play
the Forest School Way. A great book to dip into to top up the
inspiration levels. The Forest School ethos is explained clearly
and comes through in the way the activities are explained."
--Lily Horseman, Chair of the Forest School Association
