    Description & More Details

    Published by Redleaf Press New Product

    STEAM’s goal is to support the native creativity and innovation that all young children possess. Infants and toddlers have a naturally curious mindset. Yet there is little literature for educators about how to use STEAM concepts in their practice with infants and toddlers. This book uses illustrated vignettes to narrate stories of infant and toddler STEAM concept explorations and bring out new possibilities for caregivers to uncover within their own environments.
