"Emphasizes doing what is best for the child based on sound principles of how young children learn. It is not a `recipe' book as many others are."-- Joan Moyer, Professor Emeritus

"Contains many gems. Gives hands-on examples that will surely stimulate many teachers to help their students appreciate diversity and become more comfortable with peers who sound, look, behave, or learn in a different manner. This information alone may be worth the cost of the book for many teachers." -- PsycCRITIQUES
"The focus is on the children, following their interests, and creating an environment that supports their creativity. The book is filled with practical, use-it-today activities that can make a difference in the learning atmosphere in classrooms." -- Patricia Dischler, Board Member
