Excellent resource for students, the glossary is extremely useful in ensuring students understand pertinent terminology. A good range of chapters to guide a wide range of students.
This book is useful for students across all three years of the Early Childhood Studies degree. It contains useful information linked to theory and practice and signposts undergraduates to further relevant reading. I would recommend this to other course leaders.
Really useful book that covers a good range of topics. I like the summaries and further reading at the end of each chapter and would definitely recommend this book.
Opening this book was joy to see that it was written in a language that made it easier for students and staff alike to read. very often text books are written in such a way that it can be easy to switch off from. This was great from start to finish. Relevant and useful chapters making topic work clear and manageable. Each chapter gives an overview and carefully considered topics compliment each section. So pleased to say, I am going to adopt this book and encourage my students to do the same.
