"A wonderful resource for teachers and parents of young children to encourage the love of learning--especially in math--and weave spatial development throughout all curriculum areas." --Linda Adams"Executive Director, Colorado Association for the Education of Young Children, Highlands Ranch, Colorado" (04/30/2010)


"A compelling case for block play and spatial literacy as necessary skills for the 21st century workforce." --Scott Bultman"President, FroebelUSA, Grand Rapids, Michigan" (05/03/2010)


"A welcome bridge between Friedrich Froebel's nature-based pedagogy and important trends in contemporary, kinesthetic, learning research." --Norman Brosterman"author, Inventing Kindergarten" (05/13/2010)


"In the September 2010 issue of NSTA Reports, NSTA President Alan J. McCormack made imagination, invention, and innovation the key theme of his presidential term. Pollman's "Blocks and Beyond" serves well to promote this vital initiative." --Douglas Llewellyn"NSTA Recommends" (12/22/2010)


"Very timely . . . provides the conceptual underpinnings for the current interest in Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) at the early childhood and elementary levels. A valuable resource for teachers." --Rosalind Charlesworth, Ph.D.


"A distinctive feature of the book is the descriptive vignettes, which enliven important aspects of spatial development . . . strengths of the book include the ease with which it can be read, the usefulness of the cross-curricular activities, the depth of the current research used to support the need for the development of spatial literacy skills in young children, and the practicality of the contents. I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in giving young children experiences necessary and beneficial for developing spatial literacy."
