'The book shows quite powerfully...how a well-resourced and
flexible learning environment can be exploited by children to
channel their interests and expand their understanding! As well as
contributing to our understanding of learning, it should also serve
to inform debate about gaining children's consent in the research
process' - "Early Years".This book is about Harry, a determined
little boy, who is intrinsically motivated to explore his world
from an early age. His parents and grandparents find him so
fascinating that they keep a written and video diary of Harry's
play from when he is 8 months to five years. The author offers
theories about how children learn and applies the theories to the
observations of Harry. The book demonstrates how effectively Harry
accesses each area of the curriculum through his interests. It
shows how Harry develops coping strategies when the family
experiences major changes. It also highlights the contribution made
by Harry's parents and his early years educators to his early
education. Much of what we learn about Harry's early learning can
be applied to many other young children. This book about one
child's early development and learning will be of interest to all
who are fascinated by how young children learn - nursery
practitioners, early years teachers, parents, students and
