This books is insightful and will allow students to make coherent links between learning theory, metacognition, executive functioning and self regulation. I will be basing one for of my teaching sessions on this book on a module which encourages young children to be seen as competent and capable learners

This is an excellent read for anyone seeking to understand the complexities of self-regulation in children, Particularly suited for anyone working with the revised EYFS framework. The book explores SR in relation to other closely related areas presenting a clear picture of the relationships surrounding policy, curricula and theoretical perspectives. Well presented offering opportunities for reflection and exploration of ideas within practice. A must read for HE students.
