"My view of children has been profoundly influenced by the educators of Reggio Emilia in their work promoting a strong image of the child," writes Deb Curtis in her book, Really Seeing Children.
"One of the most significant resources for me is the book Reggio Tutta. It's a delightful, yet thoughtful guidebook to the city of Reggio Emilia, Italy, written by children. It is full of words, images, and drawings created by children to describe the city from their point of view. This book invites us to imagine how different the world might be if we really did take children's points of view seriously in the way we plan for our communities and how we live together in the world.
"I'm thrilled by this notion and try to imagine how considering children's views would impact the way we develop policy and design our communities: What changes would we make? How might the quality of our lives be different?"
"Really Seeing Children shifts the perspective of observing children from a dull, burdensome activity that’s done to meet assessment requirements to a delightful, invigorating, thought-provoking experience where educators can’t wait to document and share the stories of amazing children. This book expands the early education field’s view of the value of the everyday moments in children’s lives and refines adults’ abilities to see the development that occurs in children’s play, relationships, and their environment."
