Scholars and practitioners of early childhood education sometimes need reminders of how far the field of study has progressed in terms of general acceptance as a valid and actual body of knowledge. Further, we need to celebrate our identity and common culture. Morgan reminds us, in his personable and accessible way, of our shared historical and theoretical roots. His text highlights the contributions of women, social revolutionaries, immigrants, and other historically marginalized groups. Morgan's research and interpretations of history show the necessity of advocacy on behalf of Early Childhood Education. Indeed advocacy on behalf of the rights of women and children is at the heart of Early Childhood Education. This perspective is very timely and should bolster current political efforts on behalf of young children, their families, and the institutions in which they are educated. -- Clover Simms Wright, California University of Pennsylvania
Harry Morgan's book is a great read for those looking for a concise, thought-provoking book on the history and theoretical background of early childhood education. Morgan doesn't leave the reader in the past, but brings the reader to current policies and issues as well as considering trends for the future. -- Linda K. Taylor, Ball State University
Anyone wanting to learn more about the field of early childhood education - how we have improved and how we can continue to improve in helping our children succeed - will enjoy this book. * Childhood Education *
