From the Publisher"The authors have a long and successful history of guiding teachers’ understanding and implementation of best practices by drawing from the most up-to-date research and influential institutions in the early childhood field. The well-developed and easy-to-read content in the chapters provides practical examples of how teachers build inquiry-based learning experiences by weaving three main dynamics: the inquisitive learners, an engaging and meaningful curriculum, and providing a child-centered environment. Short scenarios of real classroom situations throughout each chapter bring to life the natural ways children learn through inquiry; enriched through collaboration with peers and from guidance by adults specifically prepared in early childhood education. Early childhood teachers will want to keep this book as a reference for years to come."

"In this important book, Krogh and Morehouse have succeeded in offering powerful and practical guidance for teachers as they navigate immediate professional demands. The world view which supports their recommendations upholds democratic values while taking account of the complexities of twenty-first-century living. The book offers optimism and hope for teachers at a critical time when they are challenged to develop young minds not only for the future but for rich and fulfilling lives in school today."
