The book provides an overview of physical, social, and emotional abilities and needs of children ages 3-4 giving teachers helpful tips on teaching and managing this particular age group. I highly recommend purchasing this book with accompanying music CD.”

Level 1 Curriculum Book

Although I have been teaching for many years I found some wonderful new ideas as well as ways to present old ideas in a new way to my classes. It is well constructed, informative and most of all creative as well as very age appropriate.
