How Children Learn


By John Holt. 

Second edition published 1991 by Penguin (Paperback)

When it was first published in 1967, this now classic book was something of a bomb-shell. This illuminating survey gives central place to what Einstein called the 'holy curiosity of enquiry', suggesting that teachers stand back from their pupils in order to allow the leaning process to operate more successfully. It sets out to demonstrate to parents and teachers that learning is as natural as breathing. the ways we learn to talk, to read, to count and to reason, even before we start school, should make the adult trust the child's innate ability.

How Children Learn also features an eloquent critique of methods of learning about children, and a chapter of 'Learning and love' that brings the reader close to the heart of John Holt's philosophy.
