Infants and Toddlers at Work: Using Reggio-Inspired Materials to Support Brain Development. Early Childhood Education Series
Lewin-Benham, Ann
Teachers College Press
This book contains a wealth of practical and specific activities and materials to use with infants and toddlers to enhance growth and development. Writing in the accessible style that her readers appreciate, Ann Lewin-Benham looks at current research from the neurosciences to show what teachers and childcare providers can do with very young children. For each material or activity presented, the text examines its relation to the rapid brain growth that characterizes the zero to three years, including sensory reception, movement, language, cognition, memory, vision, and motivation. Materials, with guidance for their use and where to find them, include: paint, mark-makers, man-made found objects, natural objects, clay, paper, and light and shadow. This is "the" definitive guide for trainers and professionals who work with young children. [Foreword by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.]
