Limited edition includes exclusive content from Deb Curtis and Margie Carter

You likely have dreams for your early childhood environment that are greater than rating scales, regulations, and room arrangements. Designs for Living and Learning has been a favorite source of inspiration among educators and caregivers for more than a decade. This new edition is packed with fresh ideas to help you create captivating environments that support learning and nurture children, families, and staff. It includes hundreds of all-new colorful photographs of real early learning settings and a multitude of simple and practical concepts for creative indoor and outdoor spaces and learning materials. Two new chapters have been added—one highlighting transformations of environments and one offering examples for soliciting children's ideas about the environment—and updates throughout reflect current trends and concerns in early childhood.

This limited edition of the updated Designs for Living and Learning includes a special letter from the authors, new photographs, and reflective essays from Margie and Deb. This keepsake is a wonderful addition to any early childhood professional's library.
