"Delightful, outstanding, superior, the best I've seen yet are just a few words I would use to describe the format of this text. As a professor, one item I am looking for is authors and textbooks that keep the pedagogy of college students in mind."
"Each chapter addresses an important area of early childhood administration, "walking" the student through set-up, hiring, budget, curriculum planning, parent relations, licensing, etc., a "how to manual" in many respects. The additions to this edition make it even more of an asset to a course and a potential teacher and/or administrator." Cindy Waters, Ph.D., C.F.C.S.,Upper Iowa University, Fayette, IA.
"The greatest strength of this text is the comprehensive coverage about each topic. Throughout the text, the author provides a thorough discussion of each topic including lists and suggestions." Phyllis Gilbert, M. Ed., M.S., Stephen F. Austin State University, Texas.
