KIRKUS REVIEW

A primary textbook for the first-time nursery school teacher or parents instituting a nursery group at home who may need to be reminded that the threes and fours need ""stimulation and support"" even though ""learning is fun."" Sava, a professional educator associated with the Institute for Development of Educational Activities, provides lists of materials and equipment for a basic preschool curriculum, including recipes for homemade clay and finger paint, word and number games, ideas for field trips and science experiments. There's even a suggested daily program broken down into fifteen-minute segments, not to mention the photographs of children exploring their environment. A practical, if self-evident, nuts-and-bolts handbook with extensive bibliographical references.
