The authors lay an important foundation for nurturing future generations of innovative thinkers. --Noelle Woytko, Lead Preschool Teacher, Children's Village, Philadelphia Through a delightful combination of practical insight, evidence-centered examples, and a firm basis in learning research and theory, the authors of Nurturing Creativity show a deep respect for young children, as well as for educators as active and thoughtful designers of young children's learning environments and experiences. --Lisa Brahms, Director of Learning & Research, Children's Museum of Pittsburgh Journey into the realm of creativity, where children and teachers try new ideas and grow into creative, critical thinkers who are free to make mistakes and encouraged to learn from them.
