About the Authors
As the director of a preschool and as an elementary school principal, I found this book to be an excellent knowledge base for the development of young children. The book introduced new strategies and approaches to brain based learning and its application for the “whole child” teaching approach in early childhood education. This book encourages learning and promoting children’s social and emotional development in the early school years.

Jane and Mario combine research and real teaching experience to provide ideas that are effective and realistic. They are able to effectively communicate with teachers to provide simple implementation ideas that support current research in the field. They are an invaluable resource for teachers and administrators.
