Review by Pam Oken-Wright, a teacher

A beautiful book, a pleasure to the eye and hand as well as to the mind, In The Spirit Of The Studio: Learning from the Atelier of Reggio Emilia presents as two voices, alternating between the insight of experienced teachers and atelieristi from Reggio Emilia and studio teachers in the United States. As the voices alternate, the diversity of contexts and experiences resonates. Yet, throughout the book, in every chapter, there rings a common message: the studio is, beyond a special place in a school, a way of thinking, and a metaphor for a particular way of teaching. In the Spirit of the Studio offers an unprecedented window into the thinking behind the atelier, Loris Malaguzzi's intentions for it, the growth of those intentions, and the American experience as influenced by them. Full of wisdom, provocation, and stories from the atelier, this beautiful book holds up for us yet another lens (or two or three) through which to look at what we are doing and at the possibilities that wait for us, if we accept the the studio. As the publisher suggests on the back cover of In The Spirit Of The Studio : Learning from the Atelier of Reggio Emilia, prepare to be amazed. Extract from the Review by Pam Oken-Wright, published in Innovations in Early Childhood Education: The International Reggio Exchange vol.12.n.2, Spring 2005
