Let me out!

Let me out!
How to enjoy the school run
Ann Kenrick

The Book: If you are going to read a book this week,
make it Ann Kenricks’ amazing new book “Let Me Out!”.
The author shares a fascinating insight into the school
run. More than ever before, with pressure on the family
purse, rising obesity levels and the challenge of climate
change now is the time to leave the car at home and
walk or bike to school. “Let Me Out!” is entertaining and
practical handbook for parents, children and teachers
and local authority staff. If you invest one hour you too
will be encouraged and inspired to get out of your car
and enjoy the school journey. The book provides an
entertaining mix of personal experience, policy review
and practical suggestions.

“I don’t think that there was ever a day that I was driven to school;
I would always cycle! This is an ideal book for people who want
to improve children’s fi tness, help our planet and, who knows,
produce our future Olympic athletes!” Rebecca Romero, World
and Olympic Champion

“Sustainable school travel can bring huge benefi ts to our
environment, our society and most importantly to our children.
This book will make you stop and think about the school journey
and appreciate the compelling benefi ts of walking.” Tony
Armstrong, Chief Executive of Living Streets

“Highly recommended by TfL, this book is a must read for school
travel advisors and all those working daily to encourage children
to walk or cycle to school.” Clare Mulholland, School Travel
Planning Programme Manager, Transport for London.

“Our recent report on School Transport concluded that there
is no single ‘magic bullet’ solution to improving school travel.
This practical handbook will encourage school champions with
an inspiring range of examples of good practice from schools
around the country and the world.” Louise Ellman MP, Chair of
the House of Commons Transport Select Committee.

“Most children don’t get enough exercise. Walking or cycling to
school can make all the difference but parents want to know
their children are safe. This book serves as a valuable practical
guide for parents and schools who want to promote healthy and
safe alternatives to the car.” Steve Norris, Transport Minister
1992-96, Patron of Sustrans and the Campaign for Better
Transport, founder and fi rst Chair of Cycle England.

“We know that many children want to cycle to school, and I
would recommend this book as a powerful tool for helping to turn
this desire into a reality.” Paul Osborne, Safe Routes to Schools
Director, Sustrans
