Lucy is in a Book!!

She has 3 or 4 pictures in the book...and Mike and I are in there too. Our RIE class facilitator Ruth Anne Hammond wrote this great book and a lot of the pictures in the book are other children in our parent/infant class that we went to weekly from when Lucy was 3months old until we moved, when she was around 21months.
"Respecting Babies is a guidebook that will help parents and caregivers learn to provide support to babies and toddlers in a way that allows them to become confident explorers. Focusing on the importance of building secure relationships, this guide is an easy-to-read and engaging summary of the history and methods of care originally conceived by Magda Gerber, founder of the Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE) program. This book highlights key elements of the RIE program and examines how to effectively put them to use. Readers will learn about the importance of following routines, using language, and creating safe environments in order to promote a child’s ability to experiment, explore, and learn."
