Only the paperback edition was available here on Goodreads, but I read the Kindle edition. This completes my background information research on the topic of schoolyard habitats. The next step is writing up the steps and resources, then reading two books of activities. This is full of great resource and wonderful ideas — and I think this may be better than the first volume.
This was a really inspiring book. If you are looking for ideas of ways to move your classroom outdoors check out chapter three.

Overall this book has inspired me to think more deeply about ways to bring meaningful learning experiences outside.
