Young Children Playing: Relational approaches to emotional learning in early childhood settings by S.J. Alcock

This is an exceptional book that takes a unique perspective on children’s play and connectedness with each other and the early childhood settings in which they are situated. Serving as a context for the study, Alcock explores the emotional interactions that occur during play events for children from infants through to the young child. This is a well-researched book with a detailed explanation of the methodology and a concisely worded theoretical framework, which are employed to study children’s emotionally relational ways of playing and communicating in four early childhood centres located in Wellington and Auckland.
