Sometimes a book comes along that you know will be wonderful from page one. This is such a book. I cannot wait to share these bright, beautiful ideas with the preschoolers in my family child care program.

The ideas are so thoughtful! I want to jump in and try the projects today. Use the information in this book to learn how creativity is connected to literacy, math, science, social studies, and physical development. The reflective questions and the center checklists help each of us, as professionals, to continue to learn.
