As its subtitle suggests, it is a step-by-step guide but it goes beyond this in the issues it tackles in several chapters, as well as being a valuable source of information including a glossary of research terminology, and an annotated list of early years journals. It has several strengths, in particular the 'personal research stories' which show the reader how several of the author's students tackled each stage of the research process. A second strength is the use of numerous thought provoking and pertinent activities throughout each chapter which encourage 'interaction' with the text.
