Treasures in the Thicket is part of the Reimagining Our Work (ROW) collection. Use the ROW collection to discover how early childhood educators in the field are reimagining their work and thinking alongside children.
Authors, Bethica and Rosalina, offer potent questions that reverberate beyond the pages of this book:
"How would my way of working change if I made a commitment to seeing children, and listening to them, more deeply?"
"How would it change if I decided to trust them more fully as partners in the process of learning?"
Carry these questions into the days and weeks ahead, use them as touchstones and signposts, as you embark on your own acts of collaboration with children.
