A guide to RIE's Educaring™ Approach, edited by Magda Gerber, this classic was first published in 1979. It has been fully preserved, with almost 100 pages of new material from various authors added, edited by Deborah Greenwald with Joan Weaver.
"Ruth Anne Hammond has captured Magda Gerber's unique voice within this compelling presentation of her own extensive experience in caring for infants and toddlers. Both that experience and her creative synthesis of Magda's ideas naturally emerge in this engaging and lively book. Respectfulness as a central perspective through which to view these caring relationships is richly and lovingly illustrated. Her book is a delight and there is much to be learned and enjoyed by anyone who cares for and about young children from her thoughtful and inspiring work."
