Review quote

"This volume is a beacon of progressive early childhood teaching practices. I was constantly impressed with the intimate understanding of young children that shone through the teachers' descriptions of how they engage young children and their families in inclusive practices, critical thinking, and social activism to address biases and inequities." -- Patricia Ramsey "professor of psychology and eduaction, Mount Holyoke College, author of Teaching and Learning in a Diverse World: Multicultural Education for Young Children"show more
