    Learn how to replicate a thoughtfully designed, developmentally appropriate learning environment—one in which young children are engaged in responsive, nurturing relationships with caregivers and peers. Second Home offers an intimate account of a typical day in such a setting. Age-specific chapters describe children's interactions with teachers and peers and the teachers' roles in creating a rich, harmonious environment for play.

    The accompanying DVD offers on-site vignettes that vividly illustrate the teaching concepts, as well as a video that provides an overview of BlueSkies for Children, a culturally diverse early childhood program in Oakland, California.
