«Hyun's work is invaluable to the field of early childhood teacher education as she builds a sound framework for instituting developmentally and culturally appropriate practice in early childhood settings through stories of her own work with prospective teachers. Teacher educators and prospective early childhood teachers will be enriched by her strong theoretical conceptualization of developmentally and culturally appropriate practice, as well as the ways in which Hyun captures and presents the stories of novice teachers struggling with the issues inherent in actualizing developmentally and culturally appropriate pedagogy.» (Nancy Fichtman Dana, The Pennsylvania State University)
