Editorial Reviews

Larry Garf
The second edition of Teaching Young Children takes an already valuable book and moves it up solidly to the next level. Aimed at new preschool and kindergarten teachers, this pragmatic, nuts-and-bolts guide articulately backs up practice with solid theory. I’m equally certain that experienced teachers will peruse it and murmur, 'Oh, if only I had such a book when I was starting out.'
Sharon MacDonald
"Dianne Miller Nielsen's indispensible new edition is a must-have for every early childhood teacher. Explaining how to manage a classroom while encouraging children to make good choices and assume greater responsibility for managing their own behavior (among many others things!), the book will help new teachers get started and veteran teachers improve what they're already doing."
