Enthusiastic and Engaged Learners: Approaches to Learning in the Early Childhood Classroom
by Marilou Hyson

I have always valued the gifts of deeper understanding and new ideas that come from others, especially through their written words. This book offers the gift of a framework for better understanding the varying ways young children approach learning. For those aspiring to be great teachers of young children, it is important to understand the link between children’s emotions and learning behaviors, their "enthusiasm" and their "engagement". Marilou Hyson offers this gift through her book.
