Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This huge text is designed to help early childhood teachers (those who work with children three to six years of age) create a "comprehensive curriculum that is tailored to meet the individual differences of children" (16). Using Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, the authors provide a dizzying array of concepts, skills, activities, and lessons designed to help all students learn using their individual talents, whether they be linguistic, mathematical, spatial, kinesthetic, musical, natural, interpersonal, or intrapersonal in nature. The text is divided into chapters designed around themes of high-interest for young students, including self-concept, color, shapes, opposites, animals, things that go together, food, Mother Goose stories, weather, and holidays, among others. Each chapter contains an assortment of lesson plans that delineates ways to explore each intelligence, an assessment guide for each intelligence, and a list of books cited in the chapter as well as additional titles related to the theme. The appendix is a worthy resource in and of itself. Over 250 pages in length, it includes song lyrics, fingerplays, chants and rhymes, stories, games and dances, recipes, props and concentration games, and patterns for flannel boards, puppets, and games for use in the school or home classroom. Although not appropriate as a replacement curriculum in all school settings, this text is a valuable resource for educators who wish to inspire within their students a sense of confidence and ability to succeed in both traditional and non-traditional domains. 2002, Gryphon House,

As the grandmother (Grammy) of a gifted child, I am thrilled about this compilation of challenging units and lessons! I'm an educator who teaches at the university level. My husband (Grampa) is also an educator with Job Corps. We both applaud the authors for a job well done! The in-home teaching for our granddaughter is certainly enhanced because these women put in the extra effort to develop their curriculum with multiple intelligences!

I found this book to be extremely helpful in choosing activities and creating a theme based program for early childhood. There are a lot of resources for other books as well. A must have for any early childhood educator!
