Review quote

This is a very good book. It provides a very detailed picture of what is needed to observe the child. I'd recommend it to anyone that is doing a Childcare/Montessori course as this is going to be my bible for the next two years! You'll find all the information that you need. Amazon Product Review 2011 This is an excellent book for anyone studying childcare as this book contains everything you need to know about observations and gives you an out look at each childs development at each age to help with your observations.
