The eighth edition of this popular book supports the authors belief that guidance is more than getting children to do what you want them to donow; it is helping them to become everything they can become for all of their tomorrows. The book provides an overview, followed by discussion of core concepts, strategies for applying those concepts, and, finally, the broader perspective of professionalism and human resource development.Its approach focuses on the need to consider a childs developmental level as well as family and cultural context when planning environments and activities for young children. Unlike others in the field, it offers concrete suggestions on how to guide children while they are involved in specific activities such as playing, eating, napping, etc.For teachers and parents of young children.
