“Wow! What an attractive and eminently practical book. Lisa Daly provides lavish photographic examples of how to transform early childhood play yards and home backyards. It's easy to say, 'I want one of those' and understand how you could create one of those spaces easily and economically. It's a feast of good ideas.” —David Sobel, author of The Sky Above and the Mud Below and Nature Preschools and Forest Kindergartens, professor emeritus in the Education Department at Antioch University New England in Keene, New Hampshire.
