In addition to EARLY CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES IN LANGUAGE ARTS, she co-authored (with Dr. Helen Meyer-Botnarescue) STUDENT TEACHING: EARLY CHILDHOOD PRACTICUM GUIDE, 7th Edition (©2011); and (with Romana Reynolds) EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN EDUCATION: HOW TO SECURE YOUR CAREER (©2006).Review:
"The three greatest strengths of this text are the depth of discussion of each chapter topic (particularly on infant and toddler language acquisition), the student activities listed at the end of each chapter and the topics covered in the appendix. It is apparent that the author is well-versed in the certification standards and NAEYC accreditation practices".
"Another strength of the project is the author's unbiased presentation of both sides of hot topics and critical issues. Issues are clearly explained and reasoning on both sides of issues is presented".
"Family communication and involvement in early childhood programs has become increasingly important to accrediting agencies, and rightly so. The text does such a fine job in the chapter, The Parent-Center Partnership (19)".
"Jeanne Machado demonstrates respect for children in so many small, but important ways. For example, she introduces trace writing so that the teacher can model the writing process without writing directly on the child's work. Through instances such as this, the reader comes to know the author and trust her insights."
