Review:

 

This revised edition introduces readers to a wide range of contemporary issues in early childhood, issues that are fundamental for working respectfully with young children. Each chapter has been skilfully constructed with the professional in mind, as accessible and current information is provided, overviews of research studies, useful web-links, podcast options, and thought-provoking case studies all assist with demystifying each topic.  What I really like about this book is how it challenges us to think differently about children in an adult-centred society, and it equips readers with ways to better understand children’s lifeworlds. (Dr Anna Kilderry 2013-09-26)

 

This book provides a rich introduction to key issues that concern early childhood. It makes us think about what matters to young children and what professionals can do to protect their well-being. The broad coverage and the reflective nature of the book make it an invaluable resource for those who are new to early childhood studies, for practitioners and researchers, and also for anyone who cares about the quality of early childhood practice. (Dr Hiroko Fumoto 2013-09-26)

 

This book has to be one of the most refreshing and realistic books on early years holistic care and education on the market.  There is a wide range of highly relevant issues included, all presented in a way that provokes the reader to reflect and analyse their developing knowledge and understanding. It is an excellent resource for students studying early years care and education. It provides a stimulating and thought provoking insight into the field of early childhood. (Ally Dunhill 2013-09-26)

About the Author:

Tim Waller is Editor of this book, and Professor of Child and Family Studies at Anglia Ruskin University. The majority of the contributors are based at the University of Northampton, and this is very much a team book.
