By Amy L. Valens on July 8, 2015
Format: Paperback
Written in 1929 but still completely relevant! I first read this book in college in 1965. It transformed my thinking about teaching and learning at least as much as Summerhill, which I read at about the same time! Lyrically written, it describes a poet's journey in the world of education, supporting every child in his class to find his or her way towards creative expression. I have dipped back into it many many times, and used the poetry he includes (some written by children, some by adults that Mearns used to inspire children) in my own classroom with great success.

This book will forever be on my list of all time favorites. I quote from it extensively in my book, "Educating for Human Greatness," as a beautiful way to bring out the marvelous creative power of children and youth.
