I hope every early childhood education teacher, administrator, and staff member--as well as higher education faculty--carefully reads this collection of articles. The content is critically important for our field; it addresses a huge need and offers specific guidance on what culturally and linguistically responsive early childhood education really means. --Linda M. Espinosa, Author, Researcher, and Professor Emeritus of Early Childhood Education, University of Missouri, Columbia For early childhood education professionals searching for ideas, techniques, and inspiration on how to best work with children who are dual language learners and their families, this book provides that and more. It covers the developmental span from infants and toddlers to third graders, with attention to topics like technology, behavioral issues, and the role of administrators. This Spotlight is essential for professional development opportunities, such as cross-classroom exchanges and sharing and discussion of selected topics during staff meetings. --Luis Hernandez, Early Childhood Education Specialist, Training and Technical Assistance Services, Western Kentucky University There has never been a more important time for teachers to understand children from diverse cultures. Like their cultures, children's home languages are a critical part of their identity. This collection of articles from Young Children provides practical and insightful information to help teachers make meaningful connections with all the children in their program. --Barbara Kaiser, coauthor of Challenging Behavior in Young Children This powerful collection of articles shares a transparent and robust continuum of strategies that support directors, researchers, and practitioners. Deeply engaging, these articles take a sharp look at programs and practices that foster environments in which young dual language learners thrive. --Sally Durbin, Author, Consultant, Teaching At The Beginning, Inc.
