Using examples from a Reggio-inspired school with children from ages 6 weeks to 6 years, the authors emphasize the importance of children's rights and our responsibility as adults to hear their voices. Seen and Heard summarizes research and theory pertaining to young children's rights in the United States, and offers strategies educators can use to ensure the inclusion of children's perspectives in everyday decisions. Real-life classroom vignettes illustrate how young children perceive the idea of rights through observation and discussion. The authors' work is based on these essential ideas: (1) the ''one hundred languages'' children use for exploring, discovering, constructing, representing, and conveying their ideas; (2) the pedagogy of listening, in which children and adults carefully attend to the world and to one another; (3) the notion that all children have the right to participate in the communities in which they reside.

Review:

''What we feel about children's rights affects everything. It impacts how we are with children, what we offer, what we say, how we listen, the questions we ask, the opportunities we provide.'' --From the Foreword by Bonnie Neugebauer, Co-founder and Director of Program Development, World Forum Foundation and editor of Exchange magazine

''This exuberant study of how children see their world should be read by everyone concerned about the future of democracy. Whether it is read as methodology or as allegory, it offers a model for how attentive listening evokes creativity and how mutual respect evokes responsibility.'' --Mary Catherine Bateson, cultural anthropologist

''A much-needed and powerful antidote to so many of the worrisome forces at work in early childhood education today. Let us hope that it helps refocus our efforts onto the deep needs and rights of children instead of on test scores and rote instruction.'' --Diane E. Levin, Professor of Education, Wheelock College

''Will inspire teachers to reflect deeply on their own work and the challenges of achieving social justice for children while striving to balance the perspectives of children and adults.'' --Young Children Magazine
