Editorial Reviews

“It [the text] is very useful and supplements many of the courses we offer students.” --Andrea Brown, George Brown College   “I absolutely LOVE the chapters of this manuscript, and the order in which they appear.…I really like that the last chapter opens the student up to future/advance field experiences, and prepares them for the choices of work available as an early childhood educator.” --—Dale Long, Seneca College
