Editorial Reviews

Carrie Carpenter
"The incredible collection of templates in this book makes it worth every penny. Why reinvent the wheel when the digital camera can make your classroom revolutionary? I don’t know how the author could have packed more pertinent information into a book.”
Dan Gartrell
“Linda Good guides the reader every step of the way, from showing how digital photography fits into developmentally appropriate practice, to how to use the technology to teach andassess studentsand increase family involvement. The book is a real contribution to an important facet of early childhood education in the new century.”

"The suggestions offer many opportunities to build on and strengthen our efforts toward increasing early literacy skills and encouraging home-school connections and parent involvement. I highly recommend this book to any early educator who wants to add a new dimension to learning."
