"I think this edition shows great enlightenment in all sections, including Creativity, Young Children as Artist, Art & Aesthetics, Providing Art Experiences, and Roles and Strategies. The layout of the chapters are appropriate for instruction and this text is user friendly. There is not anything missing that comes to my attention." - Audrey W. Beard, Ed.D., Jackson State University, Georgia
" I like the open-ended activities designed for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners and school-age children. I like that the activities (called "hint") are ideas, not step-by-step directions or a "recipe" approach to teaching art." - Nancy W. Wiltz, Ph.D., Towson University, Maryland
