DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM WITH PHONE OR TABLET Acknowledgments I would like to thank the following people: my parents (who gave me my foundation), my chil- dren (who taught me the most about children), my husband (who dealt with my many hours of col- lege studies and book writing), my siblings, and the friends who supported and encouraged me to aspire to be more and step further—believing in me. To the many children who have shared the journeys and adventures with me (from my family child care days to my current nook at Vassar) and all of my amazing models who brought this book to life—thank you! May all children feel the love and respect of their adults, and spend their days with a smile and a warm heart! COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL ix
