Learning with Nature: Embedding Outdoor Practice 1st ED
"Few people in the world have given as much thought to nature-based education for young children as Dr Claire Warden. She goes beyond cognition to the child's whole being. Learning with Nature is an extraordinary and accessible primer not just for educators, but parents and other guardians who should read this book as well. Claire writes - as she speaks - with clarity, strength and humour. This book is a meadow of light." Richard Louv
