Celebrating Young Children and Their Teachers
Chenfeld, Mimi Brodsky
Redleaf Press
Teachers usually enter the early childhood education profession aglow with purpose, drive, and imagination. Sometimes along the way, the inner flames flicker, or even disappear. In Celebrating Young Children and Their Teachers, Mimi Brodsky Chenfeld urges early childhood teachers to keep their lights alive by reflecting on the magic of the students and the importance of the calling. Drawing on her 50 years in the early childhood field, Chenfeld pours forth uplifting reminiscences. She celebrates play, imagination, and the creativity of children and teachers alike.
