Anna Ephgrave, Early Years Specialist, Consultant and Author of Planning in the Moment with Children (2018) writes…
“The ‘Little Schema Series’ of books appeal to babies and children alike. The clear illustrations capture the attention of young babies, whilst the messages and rhymes are enjoyed by much older children. For practitioners and parents, the explanation, and illustrations of schemas, will enhance their observation and understanding of child development.
The books celebrate the curiosity and drive within each child. They also describe the powerful learning that comes about when a child is given the freedom to lead the play and to develop that play in the way that they find appealing.
A particularly powerful quote for me is ‘We let her lead her learning, knowing her experiences were building her brain.’ My grandchildren love these books and my daughters have been able to relate the examples to the patterns they observe in their children’s play. These books would be a superb addition to any family or setting.”
