For an introductory course in early childhood education in two and four year schools


A warm and comprehensive child-centered approach to early childhood education that is dedicated to the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, and intellectual


Who Am I in the Lives of Children, ninth edition presents a constructivist, developmental approach to the full range of early childhood education and care programs. 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, values and ethics, and the personal and professional development of teachers of young children, it has become one of most well-respected books in the field.

Educators in child-centered programs are encouraged to begin with children as they are and focus on getting to know each individual’s strengths, interests, challenges, and circumstances. They then support each child in growing and learning in ways that are in harmony with who they are, rather than according to a predetermined plan.
