Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
According to the author, this is "an adventure in understanding the wonders of our senses." The activities presented are fully developed with lists of materials, related readings, and songs and poems. Although all of the activities initially require adult supervision, the material is presented in a manner that can be developed into a center, thus allowing children to continue learning on their own. Each of the five units is made up of thirteen to fifteen child-tested activities, for a total of seventy-four activities. Preschool teachers and child care workers will delight in this one-volume encyclopedia of science activities. Grandparents and parents wishing to encourage curiosity in children will want to include this book in their home libraries.
