Who Am I in the Lives of Children? An Introduction to Early Childhood Education, 9th Edition

By Stephanie Feeney, Eva Moravcik, Sherry Nolte

Published by Pearson

Published Date: Jan 6, 2012


Who Am I in the Lives of Children is a warm and comprehensive introduction to early childhood education that is dedicated to helping you promote the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, and intellectual. Its practical orientation, personal voice, appealing photographs, and numerous stories and examples set it apart. Because of its emphasis on respecting and honoring the individual child and showing you how your values and ethics impact your work with children, it has become one of most well-respected books in the field.


You will be encouraged to begin with children as they are and focus on getting to know each individual’s strengths, interests, challenges, and circumstances. This will enable you to support each child in growing and learning in ways that are in harmony with who they are, rather than according to a predetermined plan.
