By A. Williams on August 31, 2008
Format: Paperback
All educators need to read this book. This book is about what our schools are missing - the nurturing and tending of children as whole beings. School's first and foremost job should be raising a human being, not just academic content. Although written by a Montessorian, this book is applicable to all styles of education and would be helpful to the home educator and parent as well. Highly recommended.

I first read this book in 1998, when I was the implementing teacher for a public Montessori school in Wisconsin, and I was seeking peace activities for my students. Aline Wolf provides concrete ideas for nurturing the spirit of the child and promote peaceful ways of thinking and living, all flowing out of a philosophy of peace and the unfolding of a child's potential.

For me, this book served as the impetus for a peace curriculum I was later to develop and use in both public and private elementary classrooms. I have taken this book to many workshops and school in-services for both preschool and elementary teachers. It is my number one recommendation for those teachers who strive to cultivate the peace-loving spirit of the child.

I am so happy to have this book in my collection. As a teacher, it is difficult to pore through dense books, and this one is layed out in a way that is easy to digest, so I love that. I have implemented several ideas in my classroom already and hope to incorporate more in the future...

This book helps you bring non-sectarian spirituality into your classroom. It also helped me to become more spiritual as a person.

This book will now be the one I give to colleagues and friends who are entering the profession of education. I will refer to it myself throughout my career. While it is written toward Montessorians, it would benefit any educator.
