Review quote

"Reading through this book provides a framework, a canvas if you will, you can develop your program/painting to represent the richness and complexity of your staff, children and families. This book is foundational to the rich tapestry of our work." --Kristie Norwood, education coordinator, Ounce of Prevention "Important questions appear at the very beginning of this thought-provoking book: What do we believe the purpose of education to be? What is quality? Who gets to decide? In Carter and Curtis' usual friendly, accessible, and encouraging style, this second edition of Learning Together with Young Children then leads us from big questions to our everyday challenges, to core principles, and then on to practical and vivid examples of how teachers have learned alongside and with children to 'live fully and teach well.'" --Susan Stacey, author of Emergent Curriculum in Early Childhood Settings "Drawing from the latest discoveries on brain development, holistic education, anti-bias curricula, and teacher research this book is a must-have for new or experienced early childhood educators, coaches, administrators and policy makers. It offers inspirational stories from real classrooms where school communities have transformed not only their environments, but the way they envision the educational experience for young children and their families."--Isauro M. Escamilla, NAEYC Governing Board membershow more
