Lovingly written by a deeply respected and experienced pioneer who effortlessly brings together leading research literature, theoretical understanding and practical help with an almost tangible passion. This book will warm you from the inside out as you smile at the knowledge and case studies, drawn from a lifetime of experience, to help illustrate clearly and accessibly the multi-faceted aspects of supporting children's thinking. -- Martine Horvath
