These books are the result of a nation-wide contest that calls for original ideas from teachers in early childhood. Of the submissions, only the most creative and unique are included in the book. The authors of this book are teachers from across the country, and in some instances, across the world, who submitted their original ideas to Gryphon House's call for activities. Over 60 authors were selected to have their work published in this GIANT Encyclopedia. The activities selected represent the creativity and resourcefulness of teachers from all walks of life and all experience levels. Their contributions are evidence that teachers from all over continue to work hard to create effective learning centers to help children develop essential skills for life.
