Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This was so easy to pick up and pull activities out to use immediately. It seems to have an endless supply of ideas for training. There are so few books of training specifically for early childhood and this is an excellent resource." -Children's Home & Aid Society

"The format was helpful, in that a trainer can easily flip through the pages to find what is most appropriate to the workshop being conducted. The compilations of icebreaker and other games was vast." - Diane Umstead, Program Mgr., Child Care Aware, NACCRRA
