"No adult can escape the adult perspective; but simply recognizing its inevitable limitations in a children's world enables a few gifted educators to accept the existence and vilify of whole kindergartens full of different perspectives. One such person is Vivian Gussin Paley. . . . Her books. . .should be required reading wherever children are growing."—New York Times Book Review

"With a delightful, almost magical touch, Paley shares her observations and insights about three-year-olds. The use of a tape recorder in the classroom gives her a second chance to hear students' thoughts from the doll corner to the playground, and to reflect on the ways in which young children make sense of the experience of school. . . . Paley lets the children speak for themselves, and through their words we reenter the world of the child in all its fantasy and inventiveness."—Harvard Educational Review

"Paley's vivid and accurate descriptions depict both spontaneous and recurring incidents and outline increasingly complex interactions among the children. Included in the narrative are questions or ideas to challenge the reader to gain more insight and understanding into the motives and conceptualizations of Mollie and other children."—Karen L. Peterson, Young Children

From the Back Cover:

'Paley's vivid and accurate descriptions depict both spontaneous and recurring incidents and outline increasingly complex interactions among the children. Included in the narrative are questions or ideas to challenge the reader to gain more insight and understanding into the motives and conceptualizations of Mollie and other children.'-Karen L. Peterson, Young Children

From Publishers Weekly:

A master teacher of the very young (Wally's Stories, Boys and Girls: Superheroes in the Doll Corner takes us into their special world and reaffirms the value of play. In their own words, disconnected and allusiveMollie says, "Red is my favorite blue"we follow these nursery tots as they gradually find a pathway from the richness of make-believe to the regulated world typified by building blocks and doll corners. Through their story telling and fantasy play, the children, fortunate to be under the guidance of a nonintrusive teacher, grow. The children's talk, by which they develop awareness of who they are, is captivating, allowing us to observe them in a unique way. Paley is affiliated with the Laboratory School of the University of Chicago.
