Almost Everything You Need to Know about Early Childhood Education: A Book of Lists for Teachers and Parentsby Judy Fujawa
Synopses & Reviews
Veteran teacher Judy Fujawa offers over two decades of experience in her warm, witty book of lists. Filled with the imminently practical (Creative Gift Ideas, Things to Do With Boxes, Supplies or Materials That Encourage Children to Be Creative) to the philosophical (How Children Learn, Answers to: Why Read to My Child?) to the hilarious (The "F" Words Children Are Allowed to Use, Things Found in Children's Pockets), these lists cover nearly everything one needs to know to work with and raise young children.
Reviews This book is an excellent tool for early childhood educators starting out in their field, but even experienced teachers might enjoy going back to the basics as a reminder of what’s really important to a child. The book is also useful for parents in terms of helping them understand and appreciate how teachers provide children with a positive early school experience and how they might work with teachers for the benefit of their children.
