For anyone eager to become more adept at engaging children in meaningful conversations, Big Questions for Young Minds provides a clear and relevant guide to the craft of asking high-level questions to support development of critical thinking skills. Teachers, coaches, mentors, directors, providers of professional development, and families will find this book an invaluable resource. --Polly Smith, Early Childhood Consultant and Mentor of Directors Finally, a resource to help teachers develop and ask questions that encourage children to think, imagine, and generate ideas! Strasser and Bresson show how to build on what children know by asking questions that support rather than derail their play and exploration. This gem of a book should be in every classroom. --Beth Graue, Sorenson Professor of Early Childhood Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison Listening, questioning, and learning are essential ingredients to good decision making. This contribution by Strasser and Bresson will help ensure that educators won't wait until children are in high school before asking them high-level, thought-provoking questions. --Vincent J. Costanza, Superintendent in Residence, Teaching Strategies, LLC As a teacher with more than 15 years of experience in early childhood education, I found this book to be practical, inclusive, and culturally relevant. I highly recommend Big Questions to educators who are looking for a resource that bridges the gap between theory and practice. --Dawn M. Durham, Pre-Kindergarten Teacher, Passaic, NJ
