Sue Bredekamp, one of the foremost authorities in the field of early childhood education, is author of Effective Practices in Early Childhood Education: Building a Foundation, now in its Second Edition. At its core, this intriguing text provides the building blocks for understanding effective practices in early childhood education.  Building upon the Developmentally Appropriate Practice framework that she conceptualized, Sue Bredekamp shows how effective teaching practices can make a difference in the lives of young children.  Written with a clear and engaging presentation, the author designed the book to prepare a new generation of early childhood professionals by remaining keenly focused on the three core themes threaded throughout: intentional teaching, challenging and interesting curriculum, and evidence-based, effective practices for a new generation of early childhood educators.
