    Creativity and the Arts with Young Children, 2E is written for early childhood educators as well as those who work with children from birth through age eight. The focus of this revised text, is on making the vital connection to the arts throughout all areas of the classroom, including music, movement, drama, and the visual arts, and focusing on developing creative teachers who will be able to foster an artistic environment. The text includes observations and photos of teachers and children that demonstrate practical ways the arts can be used to help children reach their potential. Expanded content on multi-intelligences, Reggio Emilia, divergent questioning, and art recipes, is supported with chapter ending literacy connections, and activities for adults. The book provides many ideas for open-ended activities that are important for the development of young children, and will encourage them to think in new ways. Professional standards and recommendations are addressed so that teachers can recognize what goals these organizations believe are important in the early years. Thorough in its coverage, the text speaks to children with special needs and cultural diversity, leaving the reader with the most complete information regarding arts in the young child's classroom.
