"If you are an educator who upholds the principle of early childhood education's attention to the whole child, then Rethinking Early Childhood Education is for you. The diverse articles give insightful, practical and moving voice to teachers' experiences with children and families and make diversity, equity, inclusion, and preserving the environment integral to a quality early childhood education program." -- Louise Derman-Sparks, Faculty emeritus of Pacific Oaks College and author of Anti-Bias Curriculum: Tools for Empowering Young Children.

"Beautifully weaves together key components for transforming early childhood educators into a leadership force for progressive thinking and teaching. With its range of teacher stories Rethinking Early Childhood Education provokes critical thinking and imaginative classroom practices. There's nothing else quite like this book to fortify early educators for the work before us." -- Margie Carter, Early childhood instructor and co-author of Learning Together with Young Children: A Curriculum Framework for Reflective Teachers.

"Ann Pelo and contributing authors provide deep focus on the complexities of social justice issues in early childhood education settings, offering an overview of critical content, dispositions, and actions in support of authentic, equitable education experiences for all children, families and educators. This book can open a dialogue among ECE professionals and parents, leading to understanding the vital connection between anti-bias, culturally and linguistically appropriate curriculum and practices and children's social/emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development. With this foundation, our children will not only be able to cope with but to shape their lives and their future society in powerful ways." -- Cecelia Alvarado, Faculty, George Mason University and Director, Early Childhood Equity Initiative
