“Bringing Reggio Emilia Home”

Bringing Reggio Emilia Home is the first book to integrate the experiences of one American teacher on a year-long internship in the preschools of Reggio, with a four-year adaptation effort in one American school.”

This personal narrative of author Louise Boyd Cadwell’s journey as a teacher and researcher takes shape “in language, in drawings, in tempera paint and clay, in outdoor excursions, and in the imaginations of both the children and adults.” In the Foreword, Lella Gandini, the Reggio Children United States Liaison for the Dissemination of the Reggio Emilia Approach, shares that “Louise’s account of her internship in the schools shows the observant and reflective path of a learner who is taking in events and information and interpreting them.”

Bringing Reggio Emilia Home is an essential source of information for those wishing to extend and enrich their understanding of the innovative Reggio Approach to early childhood education.
