    By Margaret H. Johnson, Sharon T. Mitchell, Rosemary Althouse

    This creative and in-depth book will change the way that teachers think about and react to children's artwork. Based on both NAEYC and the National Art Education Association standards, the authors promote the integration of visual art into all early childhood curriculum areas, helping early childhood professionals to present meaningful art experiences to children so that they become engrossed in expressing their ideas and newly learned concepts through art media.

    Children learn about sexuality the same way they learn about everything else—through words, actions, interactions, and relationships. Families are children's primary teachers about sexuality development, but early childhood teachers and directors also support children's healthy sexuality development as they interact with children, work with families, and plan programs. This book provides key information to both early childhood educators and family members about what is typical in young children and how to support them in this early and inquisitive stage.

    Most young children love vigorous physical activity, but research shows that they may not continue to be active throughout childhood and beyond if they lack a foundation of skills. Early childhood educators need to ensure children's learning of the physical skills as well as movement concepts necessary to start them toward active and healthy lives. This book provides guidance on what high-quality movement programs should include: environments designed for young children, effective curriculum components, developmental approaches to teaching, planned assessment, and more.

    Standards, accountability, and curriculum frameworks all have a legitimate place in education. But today's schools often push to the side what should be at the very center: children and teachers. The result is classrooms that are less effective and immeasurably duller. Creating emergent curriculum is not easy, especially in the public-school world, but it is educationally powerful. Read eloquent stories of emergent curriculum in action—the struggles real teachers face and strategies to make this approach work.
