"While reading this book I was reminded time and time again of why I LOVE teaching kindergarten! This book supports kindergarten teachers’ efforts to create classroom environments where students develop a love and appreciation for learning, a sense of their competence and ability to make choices, and the sheer joy, wonder, and discovery that come with learning in the early years."

— Shakera Walker, senior manager, Teacher Leadership, and former kindergarten teacher, Boston Public Schools
