CREATIVITY AND THE ARTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN, Third Edition, is written for early childhood educators as well as those who work with children from birth through age eight. The text focuses on helping educators make the vital connection to the arts--including music, movement, drama, and the visual arts--throughout all areas of the classroom and curriculum, and on developing creative teachers who will be able to foster an artistic environment. Observations and photos of teachers and children demonstrate practical ways the arts can be used to help children reach their potential. Educators will find many ideas for open-ended activities that are important for the development of young children, and which will encourage them to think in new ways. Discussion of professional standards and recommendations allows teachers to be cognizant of goals that are important in the early years. Thorough in its coverage, the text speaks to children with special needs and cultural diversity, leaving readers with a complete information resource regarding arts in the young child's classroom.

If you love The Frog Prince and The Elves and the Shoemaker, you'll love this tale of love, magic ... and unicorns! Annis and her grandmother live in a cold, draughty castle on top of a hill, which they share with their chickens and their cow. They may be poor, but Annis's heart is full of kindness. Offering a home to an injured unicorn and a family of fairies one day, her kindness is magically rewarded. But will her good fortune bring her happiness and love? This entrancing fairy tale is brought gloriously to life by Hans Christian Andersen Award nominee Jane Ray. "Jane Ray's jewel-bright illustrations shine like the flourishes of an illuminated manuscript in Saviour Pirotta's The Unicorn Prince, featuring a crumbling castle, a dauntless heroine, industrious fairies and an enchanted prince. Gorgeous gowns, wild dreams, transformations and galloping moonlit freedom are also thrown into the mix." Observer

This book focuses on girls and girlhoods, texts for and about girls, and the cultural contexts that shape girls’ experience. It brings together scholars from girls’ studies and children’s literature, fields that have traditionally conducted their research separately, and the collaboration showcases the breadth and complexity of girl-related studies. Contributors from disciplines such as sociology, literature, education, and gender studies combine these disciplinary approaches in novel ways with insights from international studies, postcolonial studies, game studies, and other fields. Several of the authors engage in activist and policy-development work around girls who experience poverty and marginalization. Each essay is concerned in one way or another with the politics of girlhood as they manifest in national and cultural contexts, in the everyday practices of girls, and in textual ideologies and agendas. In contemporary Western societies girls and girlhood function to some degree as markers of cultural reproduction and change. The essays in this book proceed from the assumption that girls are active participants in the production of texts and cultural forms; they offer accounts of the diversity of girls’ experience and complex significances of texts by, for, and about girls.
