book review 3 

The past histories of early childhood services are often written up in a way that make for good bed time reading if you want to go to sleep quickly. 

This book on the British playgroup movement is something different and to be treasured. 

It’s not boring, it’s not just a collection of facts and recollections and it’s not a book that can be easily forgotten once read. 

As the reader turns each page a message unfolds that if we are to make any real progress today for children and the society we live in we really need to be open to learning about and taking lessons from the experiences and values of the past.
