The 3rd Edition of Doing Research with Children: A Practical Guide (2013). Greig, Taylor, and Mackay was reviewed and areas were highlighted. The text is best used as an introduction and refresher to conducting research with children. The volume addresses both quantitative and qualitative research designs and the theoretical context and frame work supporting the uniqueness of working with children. The text is suitably written for a worldwide audience and is not specific when it comes to ethics and guidelines for working within the United States. Therefore, researchers are encouraged to check with their own Institutional Review Board when using minors as research subjects. The book is well suited for graduate counseling and school psychology students, researchers working with children and adolescents.
