Reviews

“Children’s Emotions in Policy and Practice is a timely contribution to children’s geography … Empirical materials from various childhood spaces, and a range of places, make this edited collection an interesting, and potentially useful, resource. … this book is not only a contribution to the children’s geography space, but may also be of interest to researchers in social and cultural geography more broadly, as well as other areas in the social sciences … .” (Leanne Higham, Children’s Geographies, Vol. 15 (5), 2017)
