This book is filled with the personal reflections of ten very different child care professionals who have examined, challenged, and changed their own lives and their teaching practices to incorporate an anti-bias perspective into their work with children and families. These stories illustrate how prejudice and discrimination have a harmful effect on young children and the importance of anti-bias practices in the classroom. These educators share the everyday anecdotes that will help others in the field shape an anti-bias program and face the challenges of an anti-bias approach in their own communities. The book concludes by identifying some common themes found in the stories and the implications these present for teachers, directors, and teacher educators. A list of six other anti-bias resources and children's books is included.
