    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.
