Review

'This is an incredibly beautiful book which I can't recommend highly enough. The illustrations and photos are stunning and really provide the inspiration to create a summer full of fun, for and with your children. Regardless of whether you have your own garden or have to rely on public areas for your dose of nature, this book has something for everyone.' -- The Mother magazine, April 2007 'How can a TV generation be motivated to care for the environment? There is a brilliant answer in the Nature Kindergarten Workshops by Irmgard Kutsch.' --Sibylle Alexander, Camphill Correspondance, March/April 2007 'This book is full of innocent fun activities to do with children ... I am now itching to get out and make a caterpillar house so that we can see them grow to beautiful butterflies.' -- Totz2teens.co.uk
