Reviews

'This inspiring book for parents and teachers working with children from four upwards, is packed with indoor and outdoor crafts and activities. It encourages an exploration of nature, from streams and moss, to butterflies and dandelions. It encourages children to explore the natural world through play and creation, and includes many ideas of summer games such as hopscotch. I enjoyed the many ideas for building dens - whether sunshades, wigwams or little houses for bugs. It is full of photos and clear illustrations.'
