Product Description


'[This is a] wonderfully rich text. We feel the book to be an expression of our identity too…This a ‘good book’. Good because it is the product of dialogue and because it offers itself not only for consent, but also for dissent and negotiation by its non-dogmatic tone. Readers will feel welcomed, listened to and respected in their opinions, even when those opinions are in opposition to the authors.' - Carlina Rinaldi, executive Consultant for Reggio Children (taken from her preface to the 2nd edition)

"This book would be a good reesource for practitioner s as well as academic researchers. Overall, it provides interesting insight as to the philosophical perspectives of early education...The book accomplishes its goal of establishing itself outside the realms of dominant thought in developmental psychology." --NHSA Dialog, 10(3-4), 164-165; 2007

HASH(0x9b2aa444) out of 5 stars A must for early childhood educators! 15 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Dahlberg, Moss and Pence have written this scholarly book to call attention to a crisis of thought in early childhood education. The book is meant to provoke critical thinking of all we know about early childhood education and to rally concerned citizens--parents, educators, policitians and community--to critical discussion.
This book explores early childhood philosophies, constructivist thinking, and cites early childhood "experiments" such as Reggio Emilia and the Stockholm Project. It challenges and inspires on a global level.
I read this book first as a graduate school text, then again as a refresher for my own views on early childhood education. It will be read again and again!
