Review: Exploring Science with Young Children: A Developmental Perspective, by Terry Russell and Linda McGuigan

This book examines the developmental journey that children in the 3-7 age range take as they progress towards scientific understanding and the role of adults in supporting children as they learn. There is a good deal of advice for educators, reference to a wide range of supporting research and a useful ‘pause for thought’ feature in each chapter.
