The Great Outdoors

Also in honor of National Therapeutic Recreation Week, The Great Outdoors: Restoring Children's Right to Play Outside by Mary S. Rivkin is another possible recommendation. The author calls for schools and communities to restore children's outdoor play opportunities and gives inspiring examples of play spaces across the United States and the world such as the Washington Environmental Yard in Berkeley, CA. This public school's asphalt court was transformed into ponds, woods, and meadows for their children. Rivkin also suggest some practical ideas for bringing the great outdoors to your school.
