Introduction to Early Childhood Education (Hardcover)

“I was particularly pleased to see that the author has addressed the specific issues of infants and toddlers, children with disabilities, and school-aged children, a fact that enhances the quality of the text immeasurably.” – Linda Gamble, M.Ed., University of Maine at Farmington, Farmington, ME

“The addition of Developmentally Appropriate Practices as well as key points even enhances the chapters more.” – Jeanne Barker, MS, Tallahassee Community College, Tallahassee, FL

“Overall, I liked the emphasis on families. The Key Questions throughout (and I liked the way they were not just at the end of the chapter, but embedded within) offer opportunities for application, which encourages ownership of what the student is reading. I also liked the websites that were listed as resources along with the more typical print resources.” – Gail Summer, Ed.D., Lenoir-Rhyne College, Hickory, NC
