The bestselling Theories of Childhood translated into Spanish

Theories of Childhood is used in colleges across the country and in thirteen countries around the world. Now, for the first-time Spanish speakers will be able to examine the work of five groundbreaking education theorists—John Dewey, Maria Montessori, Erik Erikson, Jean Piaget, and Lev Vygotsky—in relation to early childhood in their native language. 

After many years of college teaching, author Carol Garhart Mooney saw many of her students whom, just as she had done herself, were raising families, working and going to college all at the same time. She set about a project of condensing volumes of educational research into an easier to read format, combining real classroom examples with the theoretical positions. 

Theories of Childhood provides a basic introduction to each theorist and explains the relationship of theory to practice and its impact on real children, teachers, and classrooms. This edition reflects current academic learning standards and includes new understandings of Vygotsky’s work. It is a popular guide to help teachers, early childhood students, and family child care providers be aware of the theories behind good child care practices.
