I give this book a five because if you are going in to the child development this book will guide you well to leave you anti-biases and teach children the best way you can.

This is a very good book much more than just on mere observation techniques, it is a book that challenges the reader to reflect on how we view young children. It was excellent, very useful to my work.

The book is for teachers to learn how to observe their students. This book assumes that the people reading the book see children as a nuisance and something you have to control. Also that any child that acts different or with curiosity should be controlled (especially children with needs). Then they think through this book they can HELP you see children differently and with patience. They should just give the readers, teachers and other adults the same non-judgmental respect they give children.
I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer who called this book "condescending." Anyone who has actually read "The Art of Awareness" (or any of Curtis' and Carters' other books) should know that these authors hold early childhood teachers in the highest regard.

Twelve years after it was first written, this book is widely recognized as an authoritative work in the early childhood field. In an age of educational standardization and prescription, Curtis and Carter recognize that observation can easily become just another task on teachers' full plates. In this book, they offer a very different vision, inviting readers to delight in the joy and wonder of observing young children. The activities, experiences, and examples given throughout the book view every child as capable, competent, unique, and marvelous.

Curtis and Carter clearly understand the real-world stress and pressure that fall on the shoulders of early childhood professionals. "The Art of Awareness" is a resource to support teachers in counteracting those forces, refocusing their energy, and reclaiming the gift of observation as a key part of their early childhood teaching practice.
