Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Must for every responsive classroom Introducing loose parts into your program can be overwhelming, this book reminds you to keep it simple. I would agree that it could have used more narrative/research

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inspiring but over priced This is a very inspiring book. I was really excited when I received it. I do love it but I had to knock it for the price - universally this book is $10-$13 overpriced for what you get. it's mostly pictures and some narrative. Not enough narrative and ideas that can be found online. I gave it 3 stars because I definitely love having it in my library but after the first read it becomes more of a display piece.
