BISAC: EDU057000

Every child is born with creative potential. It is our job in early learning programs—and later school years-to nurture that creativity and support resourceful problem-solving, imaginative thinking, and transference of skills and knowledge to new experiences. This book adds to the growing evidence about how arts participation helps young children develop strong social and emotional skills. This book highlights that the arts are an important contribution to children’s social-emotional development. (Imprint: Novinka)
