Editorial Reviews

Review

"Covers the breadth of children's behaviors that teachers are likely to see, and describes the major motivators for them very well. The examples and scenarios are highly interesting, meaningful, and transferable to classroom practice." (Gail Hardesty, Mentor 2005-07-15)

"Teachers of young children will feel validated by this book that explains the issues underlying behaviors that challenge us on a daily basis and shows how to address them effectively." (Xiomara Sánchez, NBCT, Dual Language Pre-K Teacher 2006-05-01)

"Learning to manage children's behavior is one of the most challenging aspects of teaching. Children tend to act out at inopportune moments, and the rest of the class is always watching to see how the teacher responds to an individual child's behavior. This invaluable resource goes a long way toward helping teachers develop practical strategies for effective classroom management." (Marilyn Karp, Editor-in-Chief 2006-08-01)

"The flow of the book is smooth and easy to grasp. The vignettes, discussions, and practical suggestions are true-to-life and applicable." (Dimensions of Early Childhood, Spring/Summer 2007 2007-08-10)

"I am thoroughly impressed. As an early childhood educator and administrator, I felt this book provided a realistic description of behavior in children of this age. This is an excellent resource to use as a staff development tool. There are useful tips, but most of all, it makes you think about each child and how your interactions are so crucial." (Denise Humphries, Preschool Principal 2008-10-16)

Good book with real-world scenarios. Not always realistic, but still a good resource that I use to help teachers who are having difficulty with student-behavior management in their classrooms.

I just started reading this book but so far I find it interesting and a different perspective on behaviors. I look forward to finish reading it and seeing how I feel at the end!
