Childcare providers and teachers in preschool and primary grade settings will greatly value the collection of writings in The Power of Guidance: Teaching Social-Emotional Skills In the Early Childhood Classroom. The writings provide a concise yet multi-faceted overview of the guidance approach used with this age group. The book examines the differences between patience and understanding and between misbehavior and mistaken behavior, important distinctions that must be made in order to understand and deal with various behaviors using the guidance approach. Readers also will learn the components of an encouraging classroom and strategies for maintaining it, leading to non-punitive approaches for classroom management. One chapter puts particular focus on intervention strategies with boys, a topic readers often seek out. The book has the distinction of being selected as a comprehensive member benefit for the NAEYC for 2003.
