Welcome to the Children's Book Database for early learning and care providers. The EABCC team has reviewed booklists, databases, and children's literature reviews to identify books that you can use to address the social/emotional needs of children in your care and that reflect the unique experiences of military connected children. Each book entry includes a summary, suggested uses and a discussion forum where you can share your ideas, activities, and passion for children's literature. If you have questions contact Jane Lanigan, Washington State University Vancouver at jlanigan@vancouver.wsu.edu.

Rockin' Around the Infant Classroom is a self-study component of a larger course for infant teachers in Georgia. Participants will learn new ideas for providing developmentally appropriate care and learning experiences for infants in group child care settings. For more information about this course, contact Dr. Diane Bales at The University of Georgia (dbales@uga.edu).

The ongoing mobilization of National Guard and Reserve forces makes it likely that even child care providers who do not work near a military installation either are currently caring for a military connected child or will care for one in the future. This Military Cultural Competence for Child Care Providers series is designed to help center and family home child care professionals provide culturally competent, responsive care for military families and their children.
