When Thought is Young


“I was entranced by this beautiful, thoughtful book, which evokes the mystery of child life as few have. The discernment, the delicate fingering of these reflections brings to us the wellspring of early imagination without hammering home any message, except that of honoring a child’s thought. Yet it has an energy, a sturdiness which carries the author’s intention through these fragile plantlings without sentimentality. A book for parents, for teachers, for us all to wonder at and enjoy and muse over.” –Seonaid M. Robertson, teacher and author of Rosegarden and Labyrinth: A Study in Art Education
