Praise for Starting with Stories:
"What a treasure trove of teaching ideas for preschool classrooms...Starting with Stories is an excellent manual for both the novice and experienced teachers because of the wealth of ideas that are developed by the authors...Commendations go to Schiller and Phipps for their careful and diligent efforts to prepare a book that teachers will use time and again throughout their teaching years."
