Overview

Creativity and the Arts with Young Children takes an innovative look at integrating the arts into all aspects of the early childhood program. It shows how the creative arts enrich a curriculum and become a motivating tool for engaging young children to acquire knowledge, make connections to other subject areas, work harmoniously with others, and expand the possibilities for children who learn in different ways. Providing key information for including the essential elements of art, music, movement, drama, and play into the early childhood classroom, each chapter includes unique approaches to inspire children in their individual capacities for creativity. With web site materials, children's books, unique examples of thematic units, projects, stories, music, and illustrations, this work provides all the resources for nurturing creativity in young children.
