"This book is comprehensive, clear and logically presented. It contains a lot of extremely interesting contextual information which will be of value to a wide range of readers including early years practitioners, teachers, advisory staff, students and parents, and provides useful information for staff within museums, galleries and theatres."
"This interesting book will have wide appeal to those interested in children, learning, creativity and the arts. ...In the context of managerialism and productivity agendas in education, this book presents a robust alternative [in the form of] education that recognises children's rights as learners."
