Adults and Children Learning Together

Author(s): Pam Hanna (click on the author's name for more titles)

Through the use of many colourful and interesting stories and examples, this book makes a very persuasive case for looking carefully and listening sensitively to children as a basis for planning. Relevant to both centre-based and family day care settings, in both Australia and New Zealand, it gives new meaning to the idea of 'starting with the child'.
Written for educators who are focussed on, and proactive about extending young children's learning.

Are These Your Glasses?

Author(s): Gavin McCormack (click on the author's name for more titles)

Are These Your Glasses? tells the tale of, Sergio, a lonely penguin who is faced with many hurdles as he grows up. Sergio is a champion against bullying. With his father as a guide, he learns some valuable lessons.These lessons help him to show great determination and strength as he tries to find true friendship.

The book has been designed to inspire deep conversations within the classroom and home about what it feels like to be excluded. It explains how we can overcome bullying with care and love.

The story of Sergio has the potential to educate children on a variety of levels. It inspires deep conversations about what it feels like to be excluded from a group and teaches children that the gift of kindness is the greatest gift of all.

As Sergio embarks on his quest for love, the sky ‘Aurora Australis’ changes its colour depending on his emotional state. This should allow those children who find it difficult to express their emotions in words to relate to Sergio’s situation. The book has a strong moral focus with many fine details and inferential clues within the beautiful illustrations which can be great discussion starters with children. And to top it all off, it has a beautiful ending.

The book is supported by detailed guides for parents and educators to assist them to extend the learning with the children in their care.

About the author
Gavin McCormack is a primary school teacher based in Sydney Australia who wants to make a difference. As a child, he was bullied at school. The feeling of the bullying he faced stayed with him well into his adult life. After working with children for almost 20 years, he has seen patterns emerging, especially in those children who are socially excluded. He decided to write this book to eradicate social exclusion in primary schools and to educate young people about the long-term effects of bullying and exclusion.

Dancing With Reggio Emilia
Metaphors for Quality

Author(s): Stefania Giamminuti (click on the author's name for more titles)

This is a book about the philosophical basis of a mode of early, preschool education. But that philosophical basis is not only set forth abstractly but explicated concretely by well observed examples of the daily life of those preschools. I happen to be a cittadino honorario of Reggio Emilia. And I confess that I am further honoured by the appearance of Ms Giamminuti’s book. For it brings that city and its pedagogical efforts into a universal context that honors us all.
[from the Foreword] Jerome Bruner, University Professor, New York University, NYC (USA)

As I read this book, the story emerged of a special educational project, seen and narrated through the eyes of a researcher who has positioned herself as a listener and observer of daily events in the municipal infant–toddler centres and ‘schools of childhood’ of Reggio Emilia. Stefania has narrated the possible which this experience attempts to bear witness to, proposing education as a primary and inalienable right of all children throughout the world.
[from the Epilogue] Claudia Giudici, President, Preschools and Infant—toddler Centres — Istituzione of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia

Your book stands out in that it gives a genuine feeling for the schools and the community while also speaking to the already published literature.
Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education (USA).

Documentation and the Early Years Learning Framework
Researching in Reggio Emilia and Australia

Author(s): Jan Millikan, Stefania Giamminuti (click on the author's name for more titles)

This new title in our EYLF series links the EYLF and documentation. Drawing on research from both Reggio Emilia and Australia, the authors are well placed to offer these insights.

From the Foreword by Jennifer Sumsion:

Jan and Stefania have taken up the challenge of ensuring that belonging, being and becoming doesn’t descend into cliché. As they explain, they have written ‘with the aim of sparking enriched responses to belonging, being and becoming’. And indeed, they have succeeded beautifully in showing how the principles of the Reggio Emilia educational project in Northern Italy can map so effectively onto the principles of the EYLF.

But importantly, they also show how bringing Reggio Emilia principles into conversation with the EYLF can provoke new ways of thinking about the possibilities of the EYLF. By focusing particularly on documentation, they make a timely and valuable contribution. They challenge some of the many myths about documentation that have emerged and taken hold over recent years. They complicate every day understandings and push readers to think more deeply about the possibilities that this distinctive aspect of early childhood practice affords. But equally importantly, they discuss ethical issues and related concerns that have been raised about documentation.
