"A book focusing on how Vivian Paley's pedagogical approach has informed her practice as a teacher is long overdue and sorely needed. Now we have Cooper's book, which is a real pleasure to read and will benefit a wide range of readers, especially educators dissatisfied with the current overemphasis on teaching young children specific academic skills." -- Ageliki Nicolopoulou, Lehigh University
