Every single book that I have read on early childhood education cites this book in some way for some reason. By thumbing through it, anyone can probably understand why.

EVERY early childhood teacher should have this book. It is affectionately known as "The Bredekamp book", "Developmentally Appropriate Practice", and "DAP".

This book is short and gets directly to the point. It is great for learning or refreshing your memory on how to appropriately teach children. Super useful!!!
