Illuminating Care: The Pedagogy and Practice of Care in Early Childhood Communities is a powerful exploration of caregiving as a vital component of education and child development and a crucial building block of human community and society. Carol Garboden Murray meaningfully invites educators, parents and caregivers to experience the essential strength and value of their care for young children, the artistry and integrity of it, in the routines of daily life. Developing a culture of caring and incorporating care into intentional reflective practice both relieves and elevates the experience of teaching. The daily rituals of each child, and children's interactions with one another, provide natural opportunities to celebrate care and build health, connection, independence, and community.

Testimonials "Illuminating Care is full of wisdom. Although it is written for the early childhood educator, it speaks to us all as it describes the virtue that our species so urgently needs to nourish and develop. The book contains a wealth of practical suggestions while offering beautiful thoughts. It is truly uplifting." - William Crain, Professor of Psychology, The City College of New York Author of Reclaiming Childhood and Theories of Development “Thank you for this inspiring and comprehensive look into the art and science of care. Your clearly articulated stance on caring, as that which constitutes the essence of our humanity, is a must read for early childhood teachers as well as teacher preparation candidates. Addressing caring as that which fuels teaching and learning, will undoubtedly influence the teaching practices and parenting styles of those dedicated to the holistic growth and development of young children.” - Dr. Frances J. Rofrano, Associate Professor in the Masters of Early Childhood Education Program, Lehman College, City University of New York “In Illuminating Care, Carol Garboden Murray calls on us to have the courage to 'challenge the notion that care is subordinate to education.' Her book offers a thorough and beautiful account of why society must grant care and the early childhood professionals who offer it the respect they deserve. Murray deserves congratulations for her own courage in bringing this sentiment, and this subject, to our attention.” - Rae Pica, Author of What If We Taught the Way Children Learn?
