'Despite the variety of contributors and their projects, the editor has achieved a consistence of tone and style in the writing, which is engaging and accessible'
-Valerie Huggins, Early Years

'[The editors] lead a mystery tour of learning in nature and nature in learning. I particularly delighted in the account of the practicalities of urban comprehensive pupils weaving together saplings along a trail as part of their 'Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning'. This book turns a dry Faculty of Public Health report green' -
Times Higher Education

'Yet again Sara has managed to capture the essence of Forest School. The varied case studies explore how the Forest School ethos applies across a wide range of clients, and demonstrate precisely why so many talented and enlightened practitioners are using Forest School with learners, especially those who don't fit in with the constraints of mainstream education' -
Susannah Podmore, FEI Coordinator, Forestry Commission England

"Knight offers a needed addition to scholarship on outdoor and hybrid environmental curriculum, with a keen modeling accommodation for diverse and special-needs learners. The book's strength is that it provides a methodology for implementation of outdoor experiential education curriculum and assessment in independent and charter schools." -- L.H. Taylor Jr. * CHOICE Magazine *
