The amazing and complex work of children’s minds is made visible in this groundbreaking new book from Together for Families in Hamilton, Ontario. Inspired by the world-renowned Infant/Toddler and Preschool centers of Reggio Emilia, Italy, artist Jason Avery and his colleagues use photography, recording of children’s words and drawings, and reflective commentary to document the investigations and emergent concepts taking place in this urban drop-in center serving children and families from infancy onward.

In a welcome departure from the world of ‘make-and-take’ and rote learning, we see children’s authentic engagement with their curiosity about the world honored and made visible. We see sustained, long-term relationships that cultivate and reinforce a positive view of children and families. We see the powerful results of an educational setting in which children are supported in their investigations of the things that interest them.

foreword by Lella Gandini, Liaison in the U.S. for Dissemination of the Reggio Emila Approach
