Dear Redleaf Press Customer, Being a dedicated early childhood professional means you are always on the hunt for the best ways to help children grow and learn everyday. The world around us changes so rapidly that there are always new ideas. We all need to keep up with the latest thinking so that our children can benefi t from the best practices and best research. At Redleaf Press, we are always trying to incorporate current thinking in our publications. This spring, Redleaf Press has several new titles to help you teach children important skills in fun ways. Celebrate Nature (page 4) is fi lled with season-themed activities to help reconnect children with nature. It introduces creative activities to keep children busy, active, and healthy as they grow and learn. We continue with a focus on growth with The Early Sprouts Cookbook (page 4). Packed with nutritious and child-tested recipes—and colorful photographs of delicious food—this hands-on cookbook promotes the development of healthy eating habits in children. It is the perfect complement to Early Sprouts (also on page 4), our complete nutrition and gardening curriculum. It’s another tool in your arsenal to help prevent childhood obesity by focusing on healthy choices for growing children. Connect with us on Facebook! Visit our page to leave feedback and suggestions, ask questions, or to catch up on the latest Redleaf Press news. We truly appreciate you and your dedication to young children. Thank you for being a Redleaf Press customer. Have a great spring!
