Book Overview

Bringing Reggio Emilia Home is the first book to integrate the experiences of one American teacher on a year-long internship in the preschools of Reggio, with a four-year adaptation effort in one American school. The lively text includes many "mini-stories" of preschool and kindergarten-age children, teachers, and parents who embark on journeys of learning together. These journeys take shape in language, in drawings, in tempera paint and clay,...

One of the First Reggio books you should buy

It's in narrative form, so it really makes you feel like you are there! It goes through her time spent in Reggio basically day by day, step by step through different projects and talks she has with educators in Reggio, and really gives you a feel of what the whole approach encompasses! Highly reccomended!

A great introduction to Reggio AND advice on implementation.

This has been the most helpful book as I introduce myself to the Reggio Emilia approach. The author shares her experience as an intern in Reggio in a very readable mix of first person observation, interview, and philosophy. But maybe more important, she then takes us the next step as she returns to the States and colloborates with a center to incorporate the Reggio philosophy. The challenges and suggestions are very realistic and helpful.

What Learning Can Be

Terrific account of a teacher's experience with the Reggio approach to creative, joyful early childhood education. Dr. Cadwell brought the approach from a village in Italy to The College School in St. Louis; the reader feels like s/he was part of the journey too. This book is a terrific must-read for teachers or parents interested in early childhood development

Fascinating and Eye Opening!

As a newcomer to the principles behind the Reggio Emilia approach, I found this well written and interesting book to be the perfect introduction. The mix of case studies along with practical educator insights provide a real understanding of how Reggio Emilia schools operate. As a parent who is "shopping" for a preschool, this book showed me what early childhood education can be like - which i hope will allow me to make a more informed choice for my child. I'd recommend this book to educators and parents alike. A must read!

An inspirational experience

This book has certainly open my eyes to the importance of bringing children (their teachers amd parents) and nature in contact as a mean to develop their sense of exploration, imagination, creativity and collaboration.It provided me with a clear understanding of the Reggio Emilia approach principles, and how I could as a parent encourage my child to explore, learn and enjoy through natural materials.
