Summary: The purpose of this book is to unify the arts into a holistic concept of aesthetic education for young children. Its aims are: to convince teachers that the arts are for everyone--and essential to the daily curriculum; to show teachers how the arts build children's interest, motivation and learning in all subject areas; to demonstrate how teachers can draw on a wide array of arts resources to enrich their curriculum; and to address the developmental appropriateness o moref arts activities and show how they support the goals of multicultural education.

The Arts in Children's Lives provides many examples of teachers who designed an arts-based curriculum and offers practical, concrete suggestions about evaluating children's growth in key areas of the arts: music and movement, art and craft, play and enactment.


  • Integrated approach to the arts includes music and movement, art and craft, play and enactment. Illustrates what an integrated, arts-based curriculum looks like and how it functions.

  • Practical examples, experiences and illustrations including:
  • The Child Artist at Work--chapter opening vignette.
  • Learning about the Arts from Children--end-of-chapter case study profile of a particular child or a class engaged in meaningful arts experiences.
  • Integrating the Arts--end of chapter feature with suggestions for high-quality arts experiences for children.

  • Samples of children's art throughout.
  • End-of-chapter book lists which encourage exploration of the arts.
  • Strong pedagogical features encourage reflection and assimilation:
  • Theory into Practice--Shows how theory and research undergird pedagogy.
  • The Artist in You--Provides perspective on how teachers' personal experiences in the arts influence their attitudes and behaviors in the classroom.
  • Situations and Solutions-- Presents several difficult, real-life incidents that challenge teachers' thinking and call upon them to apply what they have learned.
  • Individual and Group Experiences for Teachers--In class and out of class activities that are useful in building awareness of the arts in early childhood.
  • Separate chapter on family influences on the arts and guidance for teachers who wish to interact more successfully with parents around arts issues (Ch. 4).
  • Appendix of resource materials. less
