Power and Emotion in Infant-Toddler Day Care
Power and Emotion in Infant-Toddler Day Care (July 1994)
Robin Lynn Leavitt - Author

"The book is quite powerful. I couldn't put it down! I read it every chance I got. I love the way it brings together several theories, real examples, and frank discussion to paint a picture of life for toddlers in child care. We have not examined the daily lives of children in care closely enough. The issues raised here are vital to healthy development."-- Kimberlee Whaley, Ohio State University, Laboratory for Child and Family Studies

Gifted Education and the Disruption of Community
Mara Sapon-Shevin - Author

Playing Favorites examines the ways in which gifted education disrupts the classroom community, deskills regular classroom teachers, limits their ability and willingness to meet individual needs, and impairs the creation of a climate of inclusion and acceptance of difference. Sapon-Shevin shows here that current models of gifted education are elitist and meritocratic, treating some children, not just differently than others, but better; and ...(Read More)

The Care and Education of America's Children
Mary A. Jensen - Editor
Stacie G. Goffin - Editor

Children on Playgrounds
Children on Playgrounds (July 1993)
Research Perspectives and Applications
Craig H. Hart - Editor

"By focusing on playgrounds as a common theme, Children on Playgrounds offers some new perspectives on peer relationship research. As many peer relationships are played out (positively or negatively) on the playground, this perspective is particularly important because it is less visible to teachers and counselors. The inclusion of data from other countries will enable researchers to begin to answer questions about the respective roles of d...(Read More)

Pretending at Home (July 1993)
Early Development in a Sociocultural Context

The rich analysis of the play episodes of nine children and their caregivers over the first few years of their lives together yields a very solid portrayal of the development of pretend play. The volume contri...(Read More)
The Degeneracy Crisis and Victorian Youth
The Degeneracy Crisis and Victorian Youth (January 1993)
Thomas E. Jordan - Author

"Jordan reminds us that history, policy, and economics are great shaping forces in terms of setting ceilings on what children can be. There is much here that is important to scholars in child growth and development. But most important is that we are reminded of the plight of poor children today as well as yesterday." -- Margaret Yonemura, State University of New York, Binghamton
