When teachers listened to Holt's talks, or wrote him letters as hundreds did, invariably they would say something like: "I understand what you're saying, but what can I do about this in my own classroom? What do I do on Monday?"
This book is a rich harvest of possibilities. It is an encouraging book, a book that says "there are so many things we can do. Some will seem easy, some will seem harder; do what feels possible to you, and then try something else."

John Holt (1923-1985) writer, teacher, lecturer, and amateur musician, wrote ten books, including What Do I Do Monday?, How Children Learn, and How Children Fail. His work has been translated into fourteen languages and has become standards in the field of education. For years a leading figure in school reform, John Holt became increasingly interested in how children learn outside of school. The magazine he founded, Growing Without Schooling, continues to reflect his philosophy.Review:
“Holt . . . makes literally a thousand suggestions for opening windows to blow air from the outside world into the classroom, making it new and making it human.”– The Washington Post
