Book News
Educators, psychologists, early child development experts, writers, and parents authored the 47 articles collected here; they were previously published in the Parent and Preschooler Newsletter, produced by the North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center (NY, New York). The articles are organized in three categories: how children learn encompasses music, literacy, and scientific development as well as school readiness; how children grow includes discussion of first years and first friendships, ADD and aggressiveness, special needs children, and the development of healthy relationships to food and television; the parenting and family life issues addressed in the final section include first-time parenting surprises, anger and discipline, postpartum depression, grieving children, and divorce. Many activities are offered to aid the implementation of strategies. The spiral binding allows the book to lie flat when opened, making it easier to follow activity directions or photocopy pages.
