This popular text takes a developmental approach to working with and guiding young children, stressing the need to consider the child's developmental level when planning activities. The authors advocate that adults should manage the environment so that children can manage themselves to fully develop their human potential. Unlike other early childhood guidance texts, this book offers concrete suggestions on how to guide children as they are involved in specific activities such as playing, eating, napping, etc. The simple, straightforward explanations of concepts and clear organization of the book make it appealing to both entry-level and graduate-level students in guidance courses in the field of early childhood education.
