Social and Emotional Development: Connecting Science and Practice in Early Childhood Settings
Item #: 2009

Subject: Social & Emotional Dev
We know that holding babies while feeding them is important, and that games like “Simon Says” are not just for fun. But why are these practices in the social and emotional domains so important for children’s learning and development? And how can we explain our choices to parents, administrators, and even policy makers? With accessible language and numerous examples, this book answers these questions by examining the rationale and research base for best practices. Topics include attachment and exploration, friendship, impulse control, problem-solving, and state early learning standards. Copublished with Redleaf Press.
"I highly recommend this book both for teachers in training and for those already immersed in classrom practice."
