Their Name Is Today: Reclaiming Childhood in a Hostile World. This new book is available FREE to MVCDC's parents and associates from Community Playthings.
We all know what’s right for children. What do you do when standardized testing, too much screen time, or academic pressures threaten childhood as we know it? As Johann Christoph Arnold writes in the opening pages of this beautiful new book, “A book can’t change the world. But parents and teachers can – by loving each child entrusted to them. That’s why this book is in your hands. I hope it will encourage and invigorate you to hear from others who have children of their own or work with them every day, and who share your passion and commitment.”
Their Name Is Today is a tool with powerful potential to change hearts and minds, turning them toward the needs of our most vulnerable—children. Because of the timeliness and importance of its message, Community Playthings is happy to supply any quantity of this book free to the early childhood field, for use in classes, conferences, child care centers, trainings, or anywhere you feel it can support what is best for children.
