The Ecology of Story and Child

‘The true value of stories is the way in which they offer children images and ideas that help them join up the ecology of their inner worlds, or selves, with the ecology of the outer world – not the world of economic, political and cultural constructs and measurable, result-based goals, but the older, wilder worlds of stones, woods and water.’

(Strickland, T. in Harding, J., Thiel, E. and Waller, A., 2009, p. 19)
