Review quote

"This book will be an invaluable resource for teachers and elementary school librarians. It offers information in the area of early childhood education and gives an overview of the project approach to learning. The project approach promotes learning and allows the children the power to choose what they will study and how they will go about it. Included are workable activities that are interesting to young children. As educators are aware, standards and the need for quality educational experiences are increasingly being required. This book contains specific learning standards that can be integrated for each topic. Topics are relevant to children and are investigated as part of the research process. This research process leads young children so they can resolve their questions related to the topics being covered. This book also offers age-appropriate resources and addresses the different questions each range of ages have when learning a topic. This well-organized book gives a vast number of content titles for librarians and teachers to draw upon for the projects. Print (both fiction and nonfiction), electronic resources, videos, songs, and poems are suggested as part of the 'resources' sections." - Library Media Connectionshow more
