Product Description: 'Clear, concise and user-friendly best describe this practical hands-on book...Sutherland's text provides myriad practical observation ideas, identification, learning activities and resources to challenge young learners.' Susen Smith, former primary school teacher

'When I flipped this book open for the first time I just expected to get some useful tips about challenging actvities for gifted pre-school children. But what Margaret Sutherland gives us in this book goes far beyond that...This book is a valuable tool for the work with gifted pre-school children and should be available in every pre-school institution.' - Gifted and Talented International Journal

`I felt reassured by the way practitioners are encouraged to consider children's development holistically. The activities given to challenge children identified as talented or gifted are practical and easily implemented' - Nursery World

'In 100 clear and concise pages, Margaret Sutherland offers eminently practical hints and suggestions covering observation and identification and the sort of activities and resources that build confidence and skill in the very youngest learners' - Michael Duffy, The Times Educational Supplement

`This book would be a useful addition to any early years bookshelf or staff room to assist with the planning an inspirational learning journey' - National Association of Gifted Children Newsletter

'This book is very readable, full of practical advice, and a must for all those involved in Early Years, including parents' - Johanna M Raffan, Director of NACE, National Associaton for Able Children

How can we identify gifted and talented young children in pre-school settings and how can existing resources be used to challenge and stimulate them?

In this book you will find:

- practical and easily implemented lesson ideas for physical movement, maths, language and music;

- guidance on how to make sure all children are given the opportunity to achieve;

- practical ideas for the identification of able young children;

- summaries of key ideas at the end of each chapter;

- a glossary of terms.

The ideas and activities have all been tried and tested by practitioners and show how to help gifted children to flourish and all children to benefit from imaginative approaches to learning. Most importantly, they are based on using resources already in common use in most early years settings which can be easily adapted.

Teachers, nursery nurses, teaching assistants and advisers will find this book a down-to-earth guide to helping able young children and all young children make the most of educational opportunities.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
