Each chapter has been expanded and contains current information on child creativity with an increased emphasis on the elements of art and famous artists. The section on holiday celebrations has been revised, providing many excellent ideas and reasons for incorporating multicultural celebrations into the everyday curriculum in a developmentally appropriate manner. The entire "Seasons" section has been reduced to a single chapter called "Seasons: Aesthetic Awareness." It presents ideas on how to work with children's awareness of the changing world around them via the changing seasons
