Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'History in the Early Years is a timely response to a real need to support curriculum co-ordinators in primary schools. Hilary Cooper has succeeded in the difficult task of writing a text which provides the necessary theoretical underpinning of good practice and sufficient practical help to translate principles into memorable experiences and valuable outcomes...this book rings with a biblical authority on the subject and adds to the stature of this already highly regarded series.' - Times Educational Supplement

'This second book by Hilary Cooper is a pleasure to read ... at present it is the most thorough study of History at Key Stage 1. ... highly recommended.' - Teaching History

'History in the Early Years... is the most recent text with a thorough overview of research and practical suggestions for teaching all aspects of history to young children.' - Teaching History
