The Original Learning Approach Reading

This page connects to my book published by Redleaf  Press -

The Original Learning Approach: Weaving Together Playing, Learning and Teaching Together in Early Childhood.

 

Here you will find reading, listening and watching that has inspired me over the years. This is a constant work in process as it will be added to over time - things I have not yet found, things I have forgotten and things that are yet to be shared with the world.

Each chapter has its own section with suggestions of what to read, listen and watch in order to deepen your understanding of what I have written in my book. I have not included my references in the book here, this is an extra suggested reading list.
