    The creative arts—including music, movement, dramatic play, puppetry, painting, sculpture, and drawing—are a crucial part of early childhood. Not only do the arts allow children to express themselves, but creative activity can enhance development of children's skills in literacy, science, math, social studies, and more. This engaging collection of articles from Young Children also includes resources and carefully designed questions and activities to aid readers in reflecting on best practice.

    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.
