This beautiful book, with more than six hundred images and illustrations, celebrates the pedagogical practices of Ringpung Demonstration Preschool at Paro College of Education, Bhutan. It provides exemplars of programming and planning for three- to five-year-old preschool children. It demonstrates how the arts can be threaded through the curriculum. When we focus on the arts and things like self-regulation, confidence, creativity, perseverance, empathy, and compassion, then children are gaining the attributes for a successful and fulfilling life. When young children learn to be self-motivated investigators and can discuss and represent the world in which they live, they develop a love and disposition for learning.
