Summary

A warm and comprehensive child-centered approach to early childhood education
Who Am I in the Lives of Children? An Introduction to Early Childhood Education reflects a practical, constructivist approach to early childhood education (birth to grade 3) and care programs that is dedicated to the development of the whole child–physical, social, emotional, and intellectual.

With its highly readable personal voice, appealing photographs, authentic children’s classroom work, and engaging stories, it allows readers to visualize effective classroom practices that speak to each child’s strengths, interests, and challenges. This understanding–coupled with contemporary, research-based information–inspires readers to support each child’s growth and learning in ways that are in harmony with who they are, rather than according to a predetermined plan.

The 11th Edition of Who Am I in the Lives of Children? is also available via Revel™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
