Feeling stuck in the rut, burned out, disillusioned, under-challenged as a teacher of young children or teacher & mentor of other teachers -- well, this book sure is cheaper than therapy! And likely a darn sight more fun too! I could hardly put it down when it finally was delivered. I've had mine about a week and I'm nearly finished with it. What I have read is already covered it notes of all kinds -- ideas for my preschool classroom; ideas for working with my colleagues; ideas for working with parents; ideas for working with interns, observers and assistants in my classroom; ideas for working on and with yourself; ideas for teaching a college course with a colleague and friend that goes beyond the usual "how to" or "make your life easier" curriculum class but rather truly integrates theory & practice and turns teachers into thinkers and researchers. This book is full of inspirations, questions and reflections of all kinds! Run to your nearest bookstore now or let your fingers to the walking!

If you loved Designs for Living and Learning, you are going to love this book as much or even more. Filled with beautifully written examples of curriculum emerging in ordinary circumstances. Each example is like a little gem, to be looked over, thought about, and looked over again.
A MUST-read for anyone working with our youngest learners and discoverers; it will make you excited to go to work tomorrow morning.

I am not paid enough; not appreciated enough; not valued enough; not...not...not...and then I read this book! I feel that this book breathes life back into this burnt-out older soul. In stead of being a door-mat for my school, I'm feeling more like I'm contributing to a mission for the betterment of children's lives. I'd rather be a minister than just another daycare doormat! Thank you for writing this book. I feel so much better already. I'm working in a low-paying job, but I'm doing this for the OUTCOME not for the INCOME. The parents don't know that I put in about two hours of my own time everyday to make my daily lesson a better quality experience. They don't know that I buy my own puzzles and developmentally toys for use in my classroom. The garbage my boss buys for my class is really sub-par and the children are bored with the same old stuff day in and day out. I'll quit complaining. I'll put a smile on my face and I'll face my class with a fresh, positive attitude that has been "reborn" because of what inspired me in this lovely book. Thanks again for writing this book! It's a career saver!!!

This book is fill with blurbs and beautiful pictures alongside the clear and easy to understand main text. As a young/new teacher I have found that Margie Carter and Deb Curtis' books are concise and easy to understand, this enables me to put new ideas into action and be a better teacher to all of my kids!

We had this book at my former school and we used it to help design our classrooms. I purchased one for myself now that I am a stay at home mom. I am using it to help design our home to be play and learning friendly!

Yes, I bought this book for a class but the information is so relevant and worthwhile for new parents or parents of toddlers and young children. Scientific research supports the methods of this textbook.

Enjoyed using the digital copy of this book. I didn't have to haul around a heavy book and it was less expensive than an actual hard copy. The only thing I did not like was that the pages do not coincide with the hard copy of the book so when my Professor referred to a specific page number I had to glance at other people's books to find the correct page. Other than that small detail I had a great experience and will definitely be buying digital copies of books when possible.
