Overview

Offering a window to the public and private world of the classroom, Harvard Medical School psychologist Richard Bromfield reveals the feelings and motives, fears and joys, the short-sightedness and grand vision, that both children and their teachers bring to school. Touching and insightful, this thoughtful book explores the complex-and sometimes confusing-ways in which the hearts, minds, and psyches of children and teachers (and even parents) mesh, clash, and do everything in between.

Short but sweet, deep yet accessible, entertaining, and written beautifully, Handle With Care: Understanding Children and Teachers will appeal to and reward educators, parents, psychologists, and others who care dearly about and ever work to improve that most human of enterprises called school.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bromfield, a child psychologist with the Harvard Medical School, offers a series of essays about the needs and desires of children and their teachers. Although he is not and has never been a teacher, his years of work with children and his marriage to a public school teacher give him a unique perspective on the world of education. Bromfeld believes that the teaching and learning process is a complex interaction among several factors he explores here, including the environment and the psychological and social states and needs of teachers, parents, and children. Although he does not offer references to current research, Bromfield's account would be useful as an introduction to the complex and ever-changing world of teachers and children and as such should be added to all public library collections that support a teacher education program. Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries.--Mark Bay, Indiana Univ.-Purdue Univ. Indianapolis Lib. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
