A Year of Forest School: Outdoor Play and Skill-building Fun for Every Season by Jane Worroll & Peter Houghton
"A Year of Forest School has the same lovely accessible style that our Forest School practitioners appreciate about Play the Forest School Way. A great book to dip into to top up the inspiration levels. The Forest School ethos is explained clearly and comes through in the way the activities are explained."
--Lily Horseman, Chair of the Forest School Association
