Overview

Those who love and spend time with young children are often caught in the whirl of testing, assessing, and increased pressure to stick to curricula. It's time to take a break! This refreshing and passionate book will inspire educators to keep the joy, the adventure-in a word, the FUN-of learning through creative and challenging teaching.

Each theme is enriched by subsections including numerous ideas that appeal to multiple cultures, intelligences, and learning styles.

Use your imagination. Unleash your creativity. Follow Mimi's lead and set your children-and yourself-free for memorable teaching and learning.
