Listening To Young Children: The Mosaic Approach (2nd ed.)

Clark, Alison and Moss, Peter (2011). Listening To Young Children: The Mosaic Approach (2nd ed.). London: National Children's Bureau.



Viewing children as 'experts in their own lives', the Mosaic approach offers a creative framework for listening to young children's perspectives through talking, walking, making and reviewing together. Children's own photographs, tours and maps can be joined to interviews and observing for adults to gain deeper understandings of young children's lives in a range of early childhood settings.

The Mosaic approach has been applied by practitioners throughout the world. This second edition reflects on the authors' original ground-breaking work, with new introductions, updates and examples of how the Mosaic approach has been adapted, and offers case studies that will encourage practitioners to use the framework in their own setting.

Listening to Young Children will be of interest to policy makers, practitioners in nurseries, children's centres, pre-schools and schools and residential settings. It will also be welcomed by early childhood students and other researchers who are engaged in searching for new theoretical, practical and imaginative ways of listening to young children.
