This is one of the most inspiring books I have read about early childhood education. I am working towards centering my curriculum around what my children need and want. This book may be the tool I can use to get other staff members on board because, at the moment, they are all happily accepting that this is the way we do things as this is how it has always been done. We are not here to control children! We are here to nurture, encourage, believe in their capabilities and inspire them!

I bought this because of the authors and have purchased and read two others. They write well and this was no exception. Loved this book and would definitely recommend this.

This book has been very helpful in my job as a consultant to early childhood programs - especially to those developing the theory and practice of a REggio-Inspired curriculum which among other principles is very child-centered. I am familiar with the work of the authors and probably wouldn't have purchased it otherwise. It has very simple clear ideas for reflection and self evaluation. I particularly appreciated the section that compared one type of curriculum to another using October as an example. It listed typical activities in a traditional approach and then followed them with a richer, more open-ended, child-centered and intentional set of experiences. It was very concrete for teachers that need detailed examples such as this.
