Description

Every child is intelligent, resourceful, competent, and driven toward relationship with other

people and the world. But not every child grows up believing this about himself. Not every child

is invited to show these things to the world. These days, academic proficiency takes center stage in school, even preschool sometimes, and your child's intellect-the way he thinks about the world and himself-and growth of personal resources that help a child know how to learn get second billing if they are considered at all. Children can come away from their experiences at school feeling as if they are losing their imagination.

This book is for parents and grandparents of young children educating at home, whether instead of school or in addition to school. And it is for teachers of young children who want another way of thinking about early childhood education and how they can collaborate with parents or who already have another way of thinking but want more resources. It is for anyone who has a role in growing a curious, resourceful, thoughtful human being. It includes a wealth of practical ideas as well as insight into children's thinking, process, and learning.

Based on the author's decades of working with young children as a teacher-researcher, "Mommy, They're Taking Away my Imagination" Educating your Young Child at Home brings the principles of the Reggio Emilia philosophy of education home to parents and children 0 to 6 years old.
