Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What role does an animal play in a child's developing sense of self? This book addresses these and other intriguing questions by revealing the interconnected lives of the inhabitants of the preschool classroom with birds, turtles, bugs, and other creatures. This book will be delightful and rewarding for parents, educators, and students of early childhood social development, as well as scholars of the intersection of human experience and the natural environment.

Book News Annotation:

Myers (environmental education, conservation psychology, and human ecology; Western Washington U) combines ethnography and a systematic analysis of child-animal interaction building on concepts from social, cognitive, and language development. He has revised his 1998 Children and Animals, mostly by updating references, but also incorporating some new material into the text. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
