Overview

CREATIVITY AND THE ARTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN, Third Edition, is written for early childhood educators as well as those who work with children from birth through age eight. The book focuses on helping educators make the vital connection to the arts—including music, movement, drama, and the visual arts—throughout all areas of the classroom and curriculum, and on developing creative teachers who will be able to foster an artistic environment. Observations and photos of teachers and children demonstrate practical ways the arts can be used to help children reach their potential. Educators will find many ideas for open-ended activities that are important for the development of young children, and which will encourage them to think in new ways. Discussion of professional standards and recommendations allows teachers to be cognizant of goals that are important in the early years. Thorough in its coverage, the text speaks to children with special needs and cultural diversity, leaving readers with a complete information resource regarding arts in the young child's classroom.
