Abstract: It is a pleasure to provide a review for 'Children Learning Outside the Classroom: From Birth to Eleven', edited by Sue Waite. The book will be of significant value to teachers and teacher educators. In the introduction, Waite notes "that despite evangelical texts extolling the benefits of the outdoors for very young children and a research literature on outdoor education, there was relatively little theory underpinning how and why learning outside the classroom might be beneficial and for what." Amongst the many other things it achieves, the book examines this issue and provides a theoretical perspective for outdoors education in a way that is accessible and informative to practitioners. In 15 chapters the book covers a very diverse range of topics related to outdoor education.
