Reviews of the first edition: "In addition to expected information about developmental stages and caregiver response, Duffy discusses diversity and accessibility issues that affect children's response to opportunities to express their creativity... an admirably detailed guide to creativity for persons involved in caring for young children." - "Education Review". "The strength of Bernadette Duffy's book is her ability to share through tables, examples, theory and reflections her deep understanding of children's creative process..." - "Montessori International Magazine". Learning through the arts has the potential to stimulate open ended activity that encourages discovery, exploration, experimentation and invention, thus contributing to children's development in all areas of learning and helping to make the curriculum meaningful to them. Bernadette Duffy draws on her extensive experience of promoting young children's creativity and imagination to examine how visual representations, music, dance, imaginative play and drama can enable children to express their feelings, thoughts and responses.
