For the past 15 years, Roemer, founder of a family-style daycare center in Oakland, Calif., has been immersed in the world of two- to four-year-olds. With collaborator Austin ( Sad Nun at Synanon ) she discusses creative approaches, theoretical as well as practical, that she takes to help children in the growing process while their parents are elsewhere. Mother of four, trained as a teacher, Roemer established her center as "a community of children who would learn what they needed to know to belong," where her young charges have opportunity to chose their own activities and manage their lives. In touching, funny and bizarre vignettes of the children and the families that enter her home daily, this child care specialist opens the world of early childhood for her readers.
