Review:

"This book is greatly needed at a time when creativity, curiosity, and problem solving are moving over to make room for high-pressure academics. Loaded with good ideas for activities. The author′s creativity shows!" (Janet Gonzalez-Mena, Consultant, Early Childhood Specialist 2009-06-02)

“Patricia Dischler’s hands-on experience and love of early learning radiate throughout. As a defender of childhood, I am most impressed by the way she promotes play, exploration, and discovery in simple and engaging ways. Put down the video games, turn off the TV, and pick up this book.” (Jeff A. Johnson, Owner 2009-06-02)

“Creativity, curiosity, and courtesy are three missing elements in our classrooms today. Most teachers feel there isn’t time to teach these integral life skills. Read this book to discover some practical and easy ways to incorporate all three into teaching children today.” (Darlene Wontrop, Literacy Leader, International Reading Association 2009-05-18)

“A wonderful and immediately applicable resource for early childhood educators. Teaching the 3 Cs will enhance the quality of programming for young children and open up a new and exciting world of teaching for all caregivers and teachers.” (Michelle Barnea, Executive Director 2009-05-18)

"A great addition to any classroom or home library. This book is a great tool in helping our young students with lifelong learning skills that they will build on throughout their school careers and lives.” (Carrie Clark, First-Grade Teacher 2009-05-18)

“On the valuable topics of curiosity, creativity, and courtesy, Dischler displays three additional Cs―this book is current, clear and compassionate. Her dedication to the overall development of children comes through as her knowledge and personal experiences are shared. This book was obviously written from the heart.” (Deborah McNelis, Owner, Brain Insights 2009-06-02)
