    By Marilou Hyson

    Children’s “approaches to learning”—interest, joy, persistence, flexibility, self-regulation, engagement, and motivation to learn—make up a key dimension of school readiness. Research shows that positive approaches to learning improve social-emotional and academic outcomes. With images of practice in diverse settings, Hyson illustrates the possibility of building greater enthusiasm and engagement through relationships, curriculum, teaching, assessment strategies, and family communication. Copublished with Teachers College Press.

    Diversity in Early Care and Education explores the rich diversity encountered in programs and environments for children, ages birth to 8, including those serving children with special needs. The emphasis is on the practical and immediate concerns of the early childhood professional and family service worker, though all information has strong theoretical support. Although the text is situated within an early child care environment, its lessons are valuable for anyone who wants to understand more about diverse views related to children, childrearing, education, and development.

    From the very beginning of a child's life, effective listening includes becoming aware, focusing, selecting cues from the environment, and filtering out distractions. And in the preschool years, children are ready to learn a lot more about becoming good listeners. Yet very few teachers have had specific preparation for actually teaching children how to listen.

    By Dave Riley, Robert R. San Juan, Joan Klinkner, & Ann Ramminger

    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.
