The importance of understanding and using child development knowledge is a focus throughout the book. It includes a full chapter on play as a crucial part of children’s learning and development, and incorporates ideas for play throughout the material.Revised with the most current research, topics, and more, the book includes three extensively revised chapters to offer all of the 10 NCSS Thematic Strands; a new emphasis on the use of such technology as e-mail, digital cameras, and the World Wide Web; and thoroughly incorporates the current NAEYC standards for quality, curriculum, and professional preparation.
