Review:

The wide-ranging scope of this textbook, aimed at new early childhood studies students, is supported by contributions from more than 20 different experts...There is an emphasis on critical thought, as an important part of becoming an effective practitioner. The editors embed this approach with action points accompanying theories, designed to present challenging concepts to the reader. There are also ideas and practice examples to promote discussion, debate and learning...There is also a student voice feature, allowing readers to tap into other students’ views and perspectives.
