This professional, human connection opens windows to emotions the child feels and dispositions the child activates. As we grapple with when to interact or intervene, we do not always get it right, however when the interaction or the non-interference meet the need of the child, we do get the sense of a special shared moment when both the child and the adult benefit from the coming together. She was a lecturer in early childhood education at the University of Reading and was then an Early Years Adviser in Oxfordshire for 11 years. This latest book by Julie Fisher is an ABSOLUTE MUST for everybody who is interested in child development from babyhood onwards!Her examples of this in action show how even the youngest infants use language to help them make sense; to be in control of themselves and to negotiate with their friends to help solve 'play inspired' problems. In particular Julie has made watching and listening to young children totally understandable and meaningful. In this timely, thought-provoking and very readable book she prompts us to think more deeply about interactions and adapt new strategies to encourage all young children to engage in meaningful and enriching talk.

Includes first hand examples of transcripts and interactions of conversations between carers and children, from the baby room through to the year 2 classroom. Written in the author’s exceptionally clear and accessible style, this book identifies the key components of effective interactions and how implementing these can improve the quality of children’s learning. Offers practical guidance on developing high quality interactions to better scaffold children's learning and development.From the practitioners and children’s point of view, careful preparation of the environment offers greater opportunities for both interaction and non-interference; however, observation is the key to learning more about when to interact and when not. Without these gadgets, we become more able to identify with the child and get closer to the child, to become attuned. I've been teaching for 19 years and found this a very useful and challenging look at the fine details of how we interact with children.
