Reviews

Annie Davy's book, A Sense of Place, is a joy! It is clearly set out with a range of supportive photographs. It is grounded in sound nature pedagogy, reflections and professional practice based upon experience. It is very much a celebration of families playing and learning outdoors with relevant quotations and ideas for development. * Kathryn Solly, Specialist Early Years Speaker, Consultant, Trainer and Author *
This is an exquisitely produced book written with deep reverence for the child and the riches of our planet. Wise guidance for reflection and practical ideas are woven skilfully through its pages to inspire and sensitively guide the reader. * Barbara Isaacs, Montessori Global Ambassador *
I have long appreciated Annie's reflective and playful sensibilities. In this rich and gorgeous book she presents her map for connecting with young children and encouraging them to connect with themselves and the natural world. Deeply rooted stuff. * Lily Horseman, Director of Kindling Play and Training and Chair of the Forest School Association *
A practical book, well grounded in experience and full of inspiring photos to encourage practitioners to try the ideas, whatever environment they have available. * Parents in Touch *
This book explores theoretical perspectives on making the most of learning environments outside, plus it goes into a 'sensory' model of child development starting with the five senses through to more abstract notions of independence and kindness. * Nursery World *
