Early Childhood Research and Practice (ECRP), a peer-reviewed, Internet-only journal sponsored by the ERIC Clearinghouse on Elementary and Early Childhood Education (ERIC/EECE), covers topics related to the development, care, and education of children from birth to approximately age 8. The journal emphasizes articles reporting on practice-related research and on issues related to practice, parent participation, and policy. Also included are articles and essays that present opinions and reflections. The first part of this issue of ECRP contains the following major articles on research and practice: (1) "A Trip to the Zoo: Children's Words and Photographs" (Darlene DeMarie); (2) "Locatives and Visuomotor Skills in the Kindergarten Year" (Deborah Marr, Mary-Margaret Windsor, and Sharon Cermak); and (3) "Teachers' Beliefs and Teaching Beliefs" (James Raths). The second part presents the following observations and reflections: (1) "Clouds Come from New Hampshire": Confronting the Challenge of Philosophical Change in Early Childhood Programs" (Ellen P. Dodge, Barbara N. Dulik, and John A Kulhanek); (2) "Reactions to Visiting the Infant-Toddler and Preschool Centers in Reggio Emilia, Italy" (Tess Bennett); and (3) "Reflections and Impressions from Reggio Emilia: 'It's Not about Art!'" (Nancy B. Herzog). An additional feature article focuses on the Project Approach, "The Combine Project: An Experience in a Dual-Language Classroom" (Rebecca Wilson). The journal concludes with a recent ERIC database search on the Reggio Emilia Approach, and a description of new ERIC/EECE publications and activities, along with general information and links related to the journal.
