Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is filled with theory, content and context gems. It will not only benefit students of child development, but parents, child care providers, and early interventionists as well. It clearly and accurately presents how infants and toddlers develop, and how that development is best facilitated."   -- J. Ronald Lally, Ed D., Co-Director WestEd, Center for Child & Family Studies, San Francisco, CA 

 

"This is a beautifully written book. The writing style is fluent and clear. The writing level is appropriate for undergraduate students. This text is special and stands out because it emphasizes the critical nature of early intimate loving interactions with caregivers in order for a baby to flourish. The key strength is the completeness of coverage…This work’s coverage is far broader than that of many other texts currently available."  -- Alice S. Honig, Syracuse University

 

"I do not know of other texts that address both comprehensive infant development as well as curriculum development and program planning. I certainly would consider adopting this text in my courses. Child development must be the basis of working with infants, toddlers, and families, and I think this text captures that philosophy."  -- Holly Brophy-Herb, Michigan State University

From the Back Cover

This comprehensive introduction to infant and toddler development, responsive program planning, and responsive relationship-based curriculum incorporates all of the themes crucial to providing quality education and care to our youngest, very capable members of society. Woven through this text is the importance of:

  • recognizing the capacities in every child
  • recognizing and respecting individuality and diversity in all children (in every chapter, as well as with in a separate chapter on children with special needs)
  • understanding family culture and ecology’s influence on children
  • understanding and implementing the components of a quality program

 Students using this book will learn many practical aspects of the relationship-based approach, such as:

  • how to interact with infants and toddlers to promote development
  • how to use a responsive, relationship-based approach and in the daily curriculum daily
  • how to use routines, transitions, and other opportunities to respond and relate to infants and toddlers
  • how to plan for individual children and groups
  • how to set up the environment to promote development
  • how to document observations
  • how to respond to common guidance issues
  • how to be professional and ethical

In my work I support teachers in improving the quality of their infant and toddler classrooms. I am also working on my masters in Early Childhood Education. I really appreciate this book. It is so full of excellent ideas and great information every care provider should know. I love how this book stresses the importance of building relationships as the foundation of quality care. If you are teaching a class or trying to improve the level of care in your own infant or toddler classrooms, or you are a parent who wants to know what quality care looks like, this is the book for you.

I REALLY did not like this book, did not hold my interest at all and my instructor hardly even used it for my class, which was kind of annoying. I wish I would have just rented it from the school bookstore. The price was good on Amazon though, so for required texts, their new prices really can't be beat.
