Dutch Translation by Jan Hooiveld.
In the Early World helped change the course of education in New Zealand and across the world.
Described by one reviewer as “possibly the best book about teaching ever written”, this book is important not only as a brilliant demonstration of the creative capacities of all children but also in its profound implications as to the nature of the learning process. Elwyn Richardson and his small rural primary school in rural New Zealand in the 1950s became an international symbol of progressive education in New Zealand with a child-centred approach to learning focusing on creative and environmental education. The experimental school featured an integrated curriculum, values education, inquiry learning, philosophy, and creative thinking.
