Product Description

From the Back Cover

This fascinating book is about Harry, a determined little boy, who is intrinsically motivated to explore his world from an early age. His parents and grandparents find him so fascinating that they keep a written and video diary of Harry's play from when he is 8 months to five years, at home and at the nursery. The author offers theories about how children learn and applies the theories to the observations of Harry.

The book demonstrates how effectively Harry accesses each area of the curriculum through his interests. It shows how Harry develops coping strategies when the family experiences major changes. It also highlights the contribution made by Harry's parents and his early years educators to his early education. Much of what we learn about Harry's early learning can be applied to many other young children.

Providing a unique look at one child's early development and learning, this book will be of interest to all who are fascinated by how young children learn - nursery practitioners, early years teachers, parents, students and advisers.

Cath Arnold has worked in the field of early education with care for over 25 years, both in the private and public sectors. She is currently working at the Penn Green Centre in Corby as a researcher looking at young children’s emotional well-being.
