Lewisville, N.C. – Gryphon House, Inc. launches The Encyclopedia of Infant and Toddler Activities, revised, an update of the best-selling original resource, with new activities, explorations, tips and information to support the rapid brain growth of infants and toddlers.
The book, revised by Donna S. Wittmer, PhD, helps teachers and caregivers encourage infant and toddler curiosity and play, while developing their language, social-emotional, cognitive and motor skills. Teachers and caregivers of children ages birth to three can learn methods of creating and adapting developmentally effective activities that encourage infants and toddlers to learn through active exploration.
“Observation is a key strategy to creating effective learning activities that are tailored to individual children’s capabilities, interests, needs, goals, strengths and culture,” said Wittmer. “This revision emphasizes the importance of children learning within caring relationships and provides methods for achieving safe, secure, affirming, affectionate and motivating relationships within which children can thrive.”
The Encyclopedia of Infant and Toddler Activities, revised, will be widely available September 1, 2017. The book is available for preorder now. To request a free excerpt or e-galley copy, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
