Good Morning, Children: My First Years in Early Childhood Education (Paperback) Review

Good Morning, Children: My First Years in Early Childhood EducationI have never reviewed any product on Amazon and I am a regular Amazon customer, but this book so impressed me I had to submit this review. I just purchased this book yesterday and read it in one day. I currently am working on earning an AS in Child Development in order to teach in the Pre-K setting. This book was awesome! Sophia had great insight into a Pre-K teacher's daily struggles as will as successes in working with urban, low-income students. I so enjoyed this book that I had to email a professor recommending she read it as well as suggest it to her CHDV students. This is a most read for soon-to-be or first time preschool school.

Product Description:

The first years of teaching are full of any number of unexpected problems and issues that can frustrate even the most prepared early childhood educator. Based on her popular blog, Sophia Pappas' book Good Morning, Children provides an up-close and personal view of the challenges and successes of a beginning teacher. The book describes daily encounters with students, family members, and administrators; reflects on the state of early childhood education in America; and celebrates the ways the pre-K teacher can help prepare every child to succeed in both school and life.

In chronicling her successes and failures in her first three years as an early childhood educator, Ms. Pappas, a veteran of the Teach For America education program, covers a range of topics that both new and experienced educators face in the early childhood classroom. Among other important issues, Ms. Pappas provides smart and witty insights about the importance of classroom preparation, for both the school year and each individual day. She provides ideas about how to interact successfully with over- and under-involved parents and family members, while clarifying how critical family interaction and involvement are to a child's success. Similarly, Ms. Pappas describes the activities, lessons, and teaching techniques that she used to help her students learn and grow. Ms. Pappas stresses the significance of being able to listen and adjust, not only to the needs of the children in your care and to the family members of those children, but, equally, to listen and adjust to your own needs as an educator.

"This book brings the voice of a Teach For America teacher and her students into the public discussion around how to provide children with the early education necessary to set them up for long term success. Sophia chronicles her accomplishments and challenges in ensuring her economically disadvantaged students excel and communicates important insights about how to ensure that all of our nation's children have the educational opportunities they deserve."

Wendy Kopp, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Teach For America
