This week we're recommending Nature Preschools and Forest Kindergartens: The Handbook for Outdoor Learning by David Sobel

From the publisher Redleaf Press: “Nature Preschools and Forest Kindergartens is the latest from environmental education expert David Sobel. Joined by a variety of colleagues to share their experiences and steps for creating a successful "nature preschool" or "forest kindergarten" program, Nature Preschools and Forest Kindergartens walks you through the European roots of the concept to the recent resurgence of these kinds of programs in North America. 

Going well beyond a history lesson, these experts provide the framework to understand the concepts and build a learning community that stimulates curiosity and inquisitiveness in a natural environment. This helpful guide provides the curriculum ideas and guidance needed to foster special gifts in children. It also gives you the nuts and bolts of running a successful nature preschool business.”
