"An essential resource for professionals providing care and education for infants. This work is well written, easy to understand and sound in philosophy. Can be used as the base for professional development for childcare centre teams. Also easy enough to understand for parents and caregivers who are not trained educators."
"I am a parent and this book was designed for care centers for babies, but I found it very helpful! I love how respectful the authors are of babies, and it was very easy & enjoyable to read. I hope all babies can have such a sensitive and aware environment. Hurray!"
"This book is an excellent guide for teaching children 6 weeks to 18 months old in group care settings and a useful professional development tool for directors and teacher educators."
