Reviews

'The authors display a deep understanding of child development and the important role that high quality sensory experiences play within healthy development...What sets the books apart is the imaginative quality of the projects, which range from landscaping ideas to apple-ring drying...so we are helped to create a rich outdoor environment with our children and then given lots of ideas for interesting things to do out there...Our children's relationship with the environment will surely be enriched through trying some of these projects...' --Araminta Greaves, Resurgence, January / February 2007 'A very exciting book full of wonderful activites and information. Ideal for home schoolers and a must-have for any children's group. This book is totally inspiring and fills you with enthusiasm for the new season!'
