- "The rapid expansion of screen media in children's lives, along with the widespread prevalence of media-linked marketing to children, can present challenges for early childhood teachers. Teachers need to understand how media culture is affecting children and families and to find effective ways to promote children's healthy development in today's media-saturated environment." - Cover p. 4.
