Praise for Partnering with Parents:
"An unusually fine collection of family workshops dramatically organized to include children as well as parents. While their children are engaged in interesting activities, parents are developing an understanding of child growth and ability. Importantly, what they experience can be transferred to the home."
—David P. Weikart, founder and president emeritus of High/Scope Educational Research Foundation
