Thoughtful essays on topics that affect your daily work with children and their families

Navigate through the extreme swings of opinion in educational philosophy, regulations, and practices and focus on the middle ground--a place where common sense and intentional teaching combine in support of high-quality early childhood care and education. Covering a variety of topics, these essays--some humorous, some disconcerting, all thought provoking--encourage you to reflect on your policies and teaching methods, help you consider the reasons why some ideas might or might not work in your program, and raise questions for you to discuss with other educators. This is a perfect book to read with colleagues.

Carol Garhart Mooney, a college instructor in early childhood education, is also the author of Theories of Childhood, Theories of Attachment, and Use Your Words.
