This book is an easy read and gives you a deep understanding of treasure baskets and heuristic play.It clearly explains the reasons behind why these experiences are essential for young children. Lots of practical ideas for inexpensive resources so you can easily get started!

The author Anita M. Hugues has huge experience of 28 years as educational psychologists and worked together with Elinor Goldschmied - pioneer of treasure baskets, heuristic play and key person system. The book contain great amount of well structured and interesting information (historic background, case studies, content of treasure basket and how to offer it, importance of role play etc.) Useful book for EYFS teachers as well as for parents.
