By Stella Louis, Clare Beswick, Liz Magraw and Lisa Hayes (Featherstone, 16.99, ISBN 978-19050-19953)

The aim of this book is to help early years practitioners identify schemas and understand what they are, why children engage in schema play and the vital role they have in a child's development. Readers are given advice on how to plan for and support children's learning through using their knowledge of the schemas children are exploring. The theory behind schemas is carefully detailed and there are many case studies giving examples of children's explorations, what you might observe with that particular schema, and examples of how to further the learning. The book concludes with a chapter on how to share information about children's schemas with colleagues, other settings and parents.
