John Holt was the first to make clear that, for small children, "learning is as natural as breathing." In this delightful yet profound book, he looks at how we learn to talk, to read, to count, and to reason, and how we can nurture and encourage these natural abilities in our children.
Being dad of three young children, I knew that they are very capable and able to make their own choices. I nevertheless never tried to observe them so closely. Having read this book, it gives me a fresh and new way to look at and interact with my children.Buy on Amazon
