This is an excellent tool to use as a consultant to child care programs. It is also awesome for these professionals to have in their archives. What a wonderful tool!!!! Thanks for the delivery in a very timely manner.
A Great Buy! Feb 8, 2008
This book has handy and useful solutions to many, many issues you may encounter in the classroom. I keep it in my closet and frequently refer to it for realistic solutions to most problems.
A child care center must have Mar 28, 2007
This is one of the best books for child care centers. It has a page or two about every problem in your center and how to improve it. It is great to hand out to staff one article at a time so they are not overwhelmed with reading the entire book. Plus is has lots of ideas that you can't believe you haven't thought of before.
FINALLY! - A book about EVERY problem in my classroom!!! Dec 30, 2004
This is my first year teaching four year olds in a head start program. I love my job, but I do have a few problems with some of my students. This book has solutions for EVERY problem that I can think of. It is great if you want an overview on many different topics. If you want to learn more about an idividual topic, the book lists websites and other books that you can read on each topic. This is a wonderful resource for all teachers!
OUTSTANDING!!!! Sep 4, 2004
One of the best early childhood books I have ever read, not mainly due to innovative solutions that really work. Instead, Saifer's sheer attention to the little things (like "the runner", "the restless child") and the taboo things (like "the children from divorced families", "the sexually focused child", and "the masturbation-prone child") makes this book a must read fo the anyone teaching young kids. Please get it. It will inform you much.
