The closest book is Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs, put out by the NAEYC, edited by Sue Bredekamp and Carol Copple.
The following examples, which are by no means exhaustive, contrast appropriate, excellent practices in settings for children 3 through 5 years of age with inappropriate, less effective practices. The aim is not to issue a prescriptive set of practices but to encourage educators to reflect on their practice. We remain convinced that people construct an understanding of a concept from considering both positive and negative examples.
I am just tagging Chrissy!
