    By Dan Gartrell

    In an engaging, reader-friendly style, the author describes developmentally appropriate guidance in the encouraging classroom. With this approach, teachers think beyond the kind of conventional classroom discipline that aims merely to keep children in line—and often fails even to do that! Gartrell shows teachers how to help children develop lifelong skills such as mutual acceptance and cooperation, creative and peaceful problem-solving strategies, and acceptable ways to express difficult emotions. Includes a special chapter on guidance with boys. Copublished with Cengage.

    By Karen Worth, Sharon Grollman

    This book represents a new way to think about science education for young children. Based on the growing understanding that even the littlest learners are powerful thinkers and theory makers, it identifies important science inquiry skills and concepts appropriate for the very young. What's more, it makes a strong case for integrating science into the curriculum right from the start—creating a context for the development of language, mathematical thinking, and social skills.

Yet many children lack such language learning opportunities, unless they find them in their early childhood program. The engaging, research-based articles in this book describe powerful ways to promote oral language throughout the early childhood curriculum.
