A very clear, accessible and comprehensive overview of how to undertake research with children. The authors walk the reader through key concepts, considerations and questions to ask, providing a range of practical examples and templates to assist new researchers. An extremely useful text!

Michelle O’Reilly, Pablo Ronzoni and Nisha Dogra contribute significantly to what it means to conduct research that privileges the interests and concerns of diverse children. They demonstrate a clear understanding of the key issues involved in conducting research with children. As a result, they produce a detailed, practice-oriented book that is indeed beneficial to "researchers who are new to research with children" (p. xii) and which at the same time reminds experienced researchers to conduct research with children in ways that value their lives and social situations.
