11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Frank E. Kupper on August 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
I bought a used copy in good condition for $3.00.
This is the recommended purchase price, not $116.49
Congratulations to Mayesky on her retirement fund.
10th edition! Who could quarrel with that? I can.

This book is designed for the uncreative teacher,
swamped-under in an over-enrolled classroom.
It sets a standard for "creativity" that is mediocre,
despite the promises of the publisher. Visit any
preschool in America and this is what you can see.
Under-funded programs require this approach to
"creativity" - popsicle sticks and glitter, perhaps with
a feather for that additional creative flourish. Sad.

If you have more than $3.00, try The 100 Languages
of Children (Reggio Emilia) or Let's Talk With The World
(Cikanova)

This book gives ideas of activities that involve all areas of development (psychological, emotional, social...) while considering the different intelligences (logical, musical, interpersonal, etc); Includes activities according to the kid's age (young children, infants and toddlers). Of course, in addition to the theory, tips and tricks, including safety.

This books is helping me out tremendously with the Curriculum course I'm taking. It gives great ideas for lesson plans, use of materials, creative activities etc. as well as providing useful websites. I rented it but will pay to buy it since it's a book you need to have in your library and make frequent use of as an ECE educator. I'd highly recommend it also for those educators teaching early elementary school classes.

I LOVE the ideas of activities in this book! Wonderful ideas and helpful learning tools! The book was in very good condition too! I will be keeping this one because I am going to be a teacher, and it is so helpful for all students, from the very young to the older group of children.
