Here and Now Story Book: Small children live in the moment, and the "here and now" nature of these stories encourages kids to learn from their own thoughts and observations. Written by a famous educator, the illustrated tales range from those suitable for reading aloud to 2 and 3 year olds to those perfect for third graders to read for themselves.
Here and Now Story Book was among the first children's books to focus on the routines of everyday life rather than fairy tales. "One of my chief reasons for publishing this book," she noted, "was the hope of interesting teachers and parents in listening to the language of small children with ears that heard its freshness and beauty." Written to reinforce developing levels of cognition and socialization, these timeless tales are widely praised for their vibrant use of language.
Lucy Sprague Mitchell (1878–1967), was an American educator and the founder of Bank Street College of Education. A Radcliffe graduate, Mitchell was the first dean of women at the University of California at Berkeley, where she lectured in the English Department and promoted educational and career opportunities for women students from 1903 to 1912. In 1916, influenced by the work of John Dewey, Mitchell founded the Bureau of Educational Experiments (BEE) in New York City to study and develop optimal learning environments for children
