The creative arts—including music, movement, dramatic play, puppetry, painting, sculpture, and drawing—are a crucial part of early childhood. Not only do the arts allow children to express themselves, but creative activity can enhance development of children's skills in literacy, science, math, social studies, and more. This engaging collection of articles from Young Children also includes resources and carefully designed questions and activities to aid readers in reflecting on best practice. This volume is one of NAEYC’s best-selling Spotlight Series—great resources for the college classroom and staff development.
