Editorial Reviews

Review

"I think my students at the lower division level would find it manageable, just as students in the upper divisions would find it easy to read. Visually, it is so appealing and there are so many additional resources that accompany it such as links to web sites, discussion questions, suggested activities, etc... Competency Builders: These are a strength of the book. You could design lab assignments around these and practical application assignments that students could put in their professional portfolios...He [George Morrison] really does have his finger on the pulse of the field. I don't think you can get a more up-to-date text than this." (Stacey York; Minneapolis Community & Technical College)

"George Morrison has a gift for combining a writing style that engages the reader with the presentation of content...It is the writing style that sets this text apart from the others in a positive way." (Mary Cordell; Navarro College)

"The key strengths are the amount and depth of information available! There is an amazing amount of detail here. The text does weave together Early Childhood Education and Foundations effectively. The supplemental materials add even greater strength. This is very comprehensive." (James Barta; Utah State University)

Good comprehensive book that doesn't assume any prior knowledge on the part of the reader. I believe it's tailored more to those that don't have a 4-year degree.

Format: Hardcover
The scope of material covered in this text is impressive. I used this text in a class that Dr. Morrison taught in 2008. The vingettes he includes really show how to bring theory to practice. This text was helpful to me in preparing for state teaching certification, and is one that I continually reference in the field.

The book arrived very quickly and was packaged very nicely. It is in very good shape and saved me a lot of money rather than buying it from the school bookstore.
