The Child Care in Action CD-ROM series is an exceptional learning resource concerning the care of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children. It has the teaching power of a personal tutor. Each CD-ROM simulates the effectiveness of personal coaching from a child care expert through narratives, video demonstrations of key child care skills, and exciting interactive games to test students’ knowledge. Topics include safety, nutrition, and learning environments, plus cognitive, physical, language, creative, and social development. The author also has included important discussions about family and guidance issues, as well as instruction about program management and professionalism. No other early childhood education product combines text, video and interactive testing in such a compact, easy-to-use and entertaining format. For each topic selected on the CD-ROM, there are nearly ten pages of narrative, a video demonstration of child care skills related to that topic, and games that immediately test the student’s knowledge.
