this is considered alongside the content. Chapter 1 was especially useful (from tutor perspective) sending message to reader about their own abilities and experiences of leadership. It is my experience that students often struggle to see these connections, validation in printed textbook lends weight. The content is very accessible for a range of practitioners working at different levels and in roles other than leadership. Of particular note is the consistent theme of self-reflection, to enable readers to recognise and further develop a range of skills associated with the multi-faceted role of the early years practitioner. The explicit links to other chapters, use of appropriate vignettes from the research participants kept the text moving between theory and practice. The use of references to validate discussion featured works by other familiar authors that my own students would recognise and encourage wider reading. The use of contemporary subjects such as working with families, improving leading through reflection and leading developments will be particularly appealing to a range of practitioners (and tutors). The book is accessible for study at any level, from Foundation Degree to Level 6 because you can find some common ground in the content that validates, explores and extends practice to enable professional discussion and reflection on the complex role of the early years practitioner regardless of role or level of experience. This book offers a new, innovative insight into leading in early childhood. -- Linda France About the Author Geraldine Davis is a Principal Lecturer and Director of the Doctorate in Education at Anglia Ruskin University.
