Product Description: `An enjoyable book, which covers research as well as practical strategies for anyone working or living with young children' - Debate

`This is a very positively framed and optimistic book' - Early Years

`This very accessible, enjoyable, well-informed, clearly conceived and emotionally intelligent book will be of interest to all early years practitioners, whether experienced or embarking on initial teacher training, for it is always useful to be reminded that the personal, social and emotional area of learning must be of prime importance in early years curriculum' - Journal of Early Childhood Research

`In this revised edition of her book, Rosemary Roberts skillfully brings alive how young children develop a sense of themselves. The chapters have reader-friendly layout and the family story woven throughout the book illustrates the main points in a very real way. The content is gleaned from the author's extensive experience with families in the PEEP project in Oxfordshire. The book is especially effective because the author shows such empathy towards the feelings and dilemmas of caring adults. However, the flow of chapters balances the feelings and behaviour of children as well as that of the adult. There are some practical sections about dealing with children's behaviour in a way that is respectful of their feelings. The whole approach of the book should be an excellent support for adults. The author shows how children's development of a healthy level of self-esteem is built up one step at a time, through experiences with important people in their lives, as well as developmentally-appropriate approaches to their learning' - Nursery World

'This involvement in a family's life makes the book fascinating to read, and helps us to understand generalized approaches to raising children's self-esteem' - Child Education

`The recommended further reading at the end of each chapter is usefully organised... I feel practitioners will be tempted to take up these recommendations as they are presented in a format which, true to the style of the whole series, is practical, informative and accessible' - Emma Hertzberg, Goldsmiths Association for Early Childhood

`As an early childhood educator, parent and grandparent, I found the developmental descriptions of the children and the family vignettes provided really authentic pictures of what children are like. The themes of balance, acceptance, understanding, reflection and the importance of play are essential for all those who work with young children to know and understand' - Carol R Keyes, International Journal of Early Years Education

This book is about the very early development and importance of self-concept and learning dispositions. It shows a rigorous theoretical underpinning (Piaget, Vygotsky, Bruner, Katz, Isaacs, Winnicott; and more recently Bruer, Carr, Gopnik, Karoly et al and Shore) but has been written and presented in a way which is practical and accessible for a wide readership; including parents. The emphasis is on adults' observation of babies and young children; reflection about what babies and young children see, hear and experience in the course of their development; and strategies to support the development of self esteem and positive learning dispositions. In order to draw in the whole range of relevant issues, it focuses alternatively on the child's perspective and the adult's perspective.

This revision builds on the author's work of the last five years spent developing a programme to support parents and carers with children from birth to four years in disadvantaged areas, to give their children a good start at school and raise educational attainment, especially literacy, in the long term.

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.

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.

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.
