    By Laura J. Colker

    Here is a book that invites teachers to the table—even those of us who don't see ourselves as cooks—to create tasty, wholesome projects with children. Young children certainly love to cook, and cooking experiences give them a chance to see a task through to completion and take pride in a product. As they prepare food, children learn social competence; science, math, and literacy skills; and the joy of creativity. Author Laura Colker has decades of experience cooking with children and teaching early childhood educators to do so.

    By Amy C. Baker & Lynn A. Manfredi/Petitt

    Children’s interactions with their special grown-ups affect everything in their lives, especially in their earliest years. And the relationships between those special people matter, too. When adult connections are caring and strong, parents, caregivers, and directors are motivated and empowered to work together to help children thrive. The book describes this concept of relationship-based child care, what understandings and attitudes support such care, and the policies required to enact it in a center setting.
