Throughout Every Child Can Fly, Kozlowski explores the defining features of high-quality inclusion and shows readers how to provide access and support for children with disabilities.

“It is rare to find a well-documented and informative resource that also has an enlightening and engaging narrative. Somehow Jani Kozlowski has woven stories from her personal inclusion journeys throughout a book that also documents the research and foundations, captures the processes, and models the values for quality inclusion. Educators who read this book will recognize young children they have worked with in the vignettes the author uses and gain new insights related to engaging and supporting families, individualizing environments and interactions, and understanding behavior. The 4th edition (2021) of Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs prompts early childhood educators to make decisions that will lead to “a caring, equitable community of learners.” Every Child Can Fly would be a good investment for someone who wants to achieve that goal.”
