From my list on why working with young children is awesome.
Who am I?
My professional background is in working with children, my career began as an NNEB nursery nurse and I did many jobs (nanny, childminder, preschool, reception class, after school club, primary school, special school, and in learning support). I then trained as a teacher of adults and went on to be a college lecturer. I am now a senior university lecturer, but my heart has always been in the early years. I am passionate about highlighting the incredible work that is going on in the early years and in schools and have a strength-based, empowering, and optimistic view, which I try to instill in my students. Working with young children is a privilege and a joy.
Angela's book list on why working with young children is awesome
Why did Angela love this book?
This is my very favourite children’s book. I have read it hundreds of times and it still brings tears to my eyes.
It is a great book to read to children who are starting preschool, or nursery, or school. It is about 3 owl babies whose mother goes away to find food. They worry that she might not come back but of course she does. It helps children understand that their parent will come back at the end of the day.
The page where the mother owl comes back to the baby owls makes me cry every time!
