I learned from my afterlife experience what it feels like on the other side (Heaven). I came back with an understanding of what God is. This experience though, did not explain how things work there. Since this experience, I have spent the last several years connecting to Spirit on the other side. In doing so, I have years of journals that I used in writing this book. Inside, the information from these journals is used to let Spirit explain how the other side works and who goes there. Spirit guides us in the process of grief and healing. They also explain how to find peace and make the connection with them. Spirit gives us advice on living our everyday lives as well. It is an honor to share with you what I have learned. I am so happy to let them speak for themselves. They have so much to say. Having this understanding and practicing what Spirit teaches us, we can then start to heal by doing THE KINDERGARTEN RUN.

Laughter, it makes the day so much better! After about 5 years of listening to the funny conversations and comments of the children, I decided that the things these kids were saying that caused me to chuckle or even laugh out loud, needed to be recorded and shared. So, I began scribbling down bits and pieces on scrap paper and after 15 years, I've finally brought it all together in this book that I hope will brighten the day of someone who is struggling to smile.

Kindergarten Narratives on Froebelian Education

Kindergarten Narratives on Froebelian Education showcases the latest scholarship and historical understandings concerning the casting of the kindergarten idea abroad: across cultures, continents and centuries. Each chapter reveals previously unknown narratives of intrepid endeavour, political pragmatism and pedagogical innovation that collectively provide insight into the transformation of Froebel's ideas on early education into a global phenomenon. Across global contexts, each chapter presents a case study of the ideas scattering abroad, illustrative of the movement of ideas, curricula and pedagogical change; in effect taking the kindergarten beyond the geographies and pedagogies of its German beginnings and borders. Chapters draw on historical examples of Froebelian education from The Netherlands, New Zealand, Japan, Sweden, the UK and the USA. In the journal History of Education in 2006, Froebelian history scholar Professor Kevin J. Brehony (1948-2013) lamented the 'relative neglect' of the history of early years education at the same time there was a heightened global social and political interest in educating the young child. In this book, an international team of contributors respond to Brehony's suggestion that historical perspectives can play a role in current debates and suggest ways historical narratives might inform policies and practices in twenty-first century early childhood education, care settings and contexts. Reconnecting past lessons and insights with present and future concerns for early education, young children and their place in society, this important collection also includes an historical timeline charting the spread of Froebelian education ideas and kindergartens across the world.

"This book explores how the current process of schooling that frames public education through economic rather than democratic terms is fundamentally flawed, why it must change, and how all members and participants within the early childhood and elementary school communities must be a part of the reform process. The work is based on the author's recent studies of stakeholders' in the changed kindergarten as well as earlier studies examining the impact of reforms on classrooms, pre and in-service teachers, students, families, administrators, teacher educators, and other education stakeholders. By examining these issues empirically, practically, and theoretically, the author illuminates the complexity of what is currently occurring in kindergarten and other early childhood classrooms across the U.S. Then, Brown skillfully puts forward ideas for change that are practical and achievable in developing systems of schooling that can educate, foster, and sustain a democratic society"--
