Whether you are well-versed in the Reggio Emilia Approach or new to this engaging philosophy, “The Hundred Languages of Children” (Second Edition) is a must-read for parents and educators everywhere. Assembled by Carolyn Edwards, Lella Gandini and George Forman, with foreword by Howard Gardner, this rich resource presents a comprehensive overview of the Reggio Emilia philosophy and practices of the city-run early childhood program of Reggio Emilia, Italy.
“…The Hundred Languages of Children, a combined effort of Italian and American educators and philosophers who have been intimately involved in the centres of Reggio Emilia, delights the readers with information on the history and philosophy of the childcare centers in Reggio Emilia, and how the approach has been replicated in American classrooms… By articulating constructionist theories and practices, this book makes a unique and important contribution to early childhood education. It no doubt will be considered a valuable resource by early childhood educators everywhere…” ~Holistic Education.
