- A Handbook for Parents with Young Children
This wonderful resource book balances a theoretical understanding of child development with practical ideas, resources, and tips that can transform family life. Readers will learn how to create the regular life rhythms needed to establish a foundation for learning; how to design indoor play environments that allow children the broadest development of skills; and how to create outdoor play spaces that encourage vigorous movement and a wide sensory palette. Through art, storytelling, and the festival celebrations, this book is an invaluable guide to building a “family culture” based on the guiding principle of love - a culture that supports children and encourages the free development of each unique soul.
Responding to parents’ questions from more than twenty years of teaching, Sharifa Oppenheimer offers a gift from the heart.
This text is a practical, inspiring resource that brings the author's informed, intuitive understanding of young children into the heart of the home.
