This comprehensive text gives pre-service early childhood educators a balanced, accessible introduction to early childhood education that also covers the content areas. It shows readers how to teach and care for children by identifying and focusing on five essential elements: understanding child development, play, guidance, working with families, and diversity. Each essential element is addressed in its own separate chapter and then explored at a deeper level in a featured section in ever chapter. Included is a rigorous overview of the planning, preparation, and delivery of a curriculum for young children built around six specific curriculum areas, each explored in its own chapter. The author stresses the importance of play and the need to nurture each child’s natural affinity for learning through experimentation and exploration. Separate chapters cover the importance of the outdoor environment and the effect of technology on early childhood education, giving future teachers a well-rounded look at delivering quality early education. Short vignettes help students better understand young children; numerous practical examples of developmentally appropriate strategies provide tools for actual classroom teaching; and supplemental resources assist instructors in presenting the course.

GROWING ARTISTS: TEACHING THE ARTS TO YOUNG CHILDREN, 5th Edition, provides early childhood educators with the theoretical framework, current brain research, and background knowledge needed to design creative arts activities for young children from infancy through the primary grades. Beautifully illustrated with children’s artwork, it features a wealth of child-tested dramatic arts, music, dance, and visual art activities that nurture children’s creativity. The creation of a safe, sensory-appealing arts program in which works created by diverse peoples and cultures are valued is emphasized throughout.

Children’s literature about the arts, and ideas for adapting arts activities for children with special needs, are integrated into each chapter. Chapters cover the creative process; artistic, aesthetic, and sensory development; anti-bias; and community-building arts activities. Emergent curriculum, thematic teaching, the project approach, and art appreciation activities are also included. Examples of teaching in action model how to be an enthusiastic and effective teacher of the arts process. This book provides a rich resource of ideas and approaches that will inspire all those who work with young children to explore the arts process with them.

Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.
