Once again NAEYC has made available to the field a powerful expression of what all of us strive to provide for the children in our care. I remember embracing the original Anti-Bias Curriculum when I was a new Head Start teacher—it shaped and guided my practice for years. I am certain that this new edition will help the next generation of teachers create enriching learning environments that reflect, support, and respect the diverse backgrounds of the young children they serve.

The new book integrates our understanding of anti-bias with current research and knowledge, creating a theoretical and practical book for anyone interested in exploring antibias education. Louise and Julie have captured the essence of the original ABC book and expanded it—this volume is a thorough discussion of the issues with thought provoking questions and practical suggestions for anti-bias classrooms!

How exciting to finally have the anti-bias “bible” updated! I love the addition of the “Voices from the Field” segments and the new chapters on economic class differences and family structures. I also greatly appreciate the focus on adult development in this process. This book should be a part of every early childhood professional’s library!
