Comprehensive Resource for Early Childhood Teachers!
As a college instructor and early childhood educator I have found this text an outstanding resource for information on fostering creativity in young children as well as a terrific compliation of fun, creative, and easy to implement activities with young children. The majority of the early childhood teachers that take our creativity class have found this text very useful in their teaching careers for information and great ideas after the course ends.
