You can never know enough, or study too much, when it comes to child development. Books like this, then, are very welcome, not just for students or those beginning their careers, but for more experienced practitioners who want to keep abreast of current research, or need to reflect on their practice or challenge entrenched thinking. Being a second edition, the book has been updated with current policy and legislation. A thorough book without being to "weighty", and each chapter is comprehensively referenced to help broaden your knowledge.
