In their self-published book, Raising the Village (2009 $24.95) Tracy Smyth and Tammy Dewar show how the fields of early childhood work and community development can unify their concerns, expertise, and vision, and, in the process, create villages that develop their communities by developing their children.

Raising the Village is a resource for:

- community developers and child advocates
- policy makers, managers and frontline service providers in organizations serving children and families
- college and university instructors and students
- practitioners from many social service sectors such as child care, health, education and social work.
