The early experiences children have of science are crucial in determining later attitudes to learning about it. Here is an excellent introduction for trainee Early Years teachers, and one which helps practising teachers to make science accessible and interesting to young children. It provides strategies to help maintain the impetus all through primary school given by good science teaching in the early years and includes suggestions for cross-curricular teaching, including ICT. The book is full of practical, well tested ideas linked to CGFS (KUW), QCA schemes of work and Curriculum Guidance (Scotland). It is an important addition to the Early Years practitioner's booklist, and a useful reference book across the later key stages.

"Even readers with many years experience in combating prejudice will find much new and innovative material to enrich and inspire their work with children and students."
