“When all cultures are visible then we can see ourselves as belonging in community—sharing similarities and differences. Children learn this best by manipulating tangible items in their environment. Lisa’s and Miriam’s creative vision and cultural research and Jenna’s artful photos give us examples about how we can include cultural materials in our classrooms in meaningful ways, making this latest Loose Parts another valuable resource for us all.” —Joyce Daniels, MEd Early Child Education
"These carefully selected photographs elicit creative and critical evaluations of our place in the global landscape. Readers are offered imaginative ways to nurture their own and, more importantly, young children’s inclination to share their existence with others.” —Patrick Pieng, PhD
“Once again, Daly and Beloglovsky offer beautiful photographs and prose to help bridge the home and community within early childhood settings. They illustrate a framework that is both achievable and thought provoking in how a teacher can create simple environments that remain true to children’s cultural values that capture and honor identities through play and exploration that is both soulful and creative.” —Cindy Linhares, MA, ED
"Words like imaginative, creative, honoring, culturally appropriate are beautiful ‘place holders’ for delving into Loose Parts 3 It’s a magical joyful adventure in what can be created in early childhood environments. The photographs offer one an experience similar to looking through a treasured family album, one of remembering our own delightful childhood play.” —Lorraine Lima MA, Head Start consultant
"Loose Parts 3: Insporing Culturally Sustainable Environments is playfully engaging for teachers, parents, and children. Each Chapter is powerfully constructed and entices the viewer to engage creatively with self-reflection, self- acceptance, and self-empowerment. Jenna’s photographs persuade imaginative curiosity and an awakened awareness of our cultural similarities.” —Tu Bears, Native American author, poet, artist and storyteller
