Kindergarten is a unique year, a special opportunity in the lives of our children. However, in the last 20 years, the typical kindergarten curriculum has become more teacher-centered and it emphasizes kindergartners' academic development, sometimes at the neglect of their social and emotional development. This book presents a unique view of good teaching and learning in kindergarten so those children can thrive in its presence. The author, a teacher educator, shares his observations, often in the words of the teacher, Mrs. Poremba, and her students based on one year he spent in her classroom. Each of the ten chapters contains verbatim dialogue and rich description spanning from the first day of kindergarten to the last day of the school year. For anyone involved in decision making about early childhood education.
