Reader Comments:
"The book's strength lies on the broad range of techniques that are explained and the enabling strategies that are detailed...easy to read, it gives some fundamental understandings that would otherwise only be achieved through experience."
- Educational psychology in Practice

"..provides a valuable insight into the world of the child, packed full of anecdotal accounts which are both thought-provoking and poignant...highly recommended."
