Our World?
Samuelsson, Ingrid Pramling, Ed.
Authored by individuals from five Nordic countries, this book focuses on questions about the child's right to live in and learn about an ecologically sustainable world. The first five chapters are theoretical in character, while the final six chapters are derived from work done by early childhood teachers together with children. The goal of the book is to contribute to teacher's knowledge base and also to give some inspiration for new approaches in everyday work with children. Following a brief preface, 11 individual essays are presented: (1) "Wondering--Understanding--Change" (Stefan Edman); (2) "Rio, Iceland and the Child--Environmental Issues and Education in Iceland" (Thor Jakobsson); (3) "Can Children Learning To Protect the Natural Environment, Profit from the Wisdom of Indigenous Peoples?" (Per-Olav Tiller); (4) "Environmental Co-Operation between Children, Adults and Authorities" (Kaija Kess); (5) "This Is, After All, The Water Planet!" (Anne Lea and Inger Hilmo); (6) "Water--Environmental Education for Preschool Children" (Hrafnhildur Sigurdardottir); (7) "The Best Way for the Child To Learn Is by Doing" (Paivi Romppainen); (8) "Learning about Different Aspects of the World Around Us in a Theme of Nature" (Ingrid Pramling Samuelsson and Ann-Charlotte Mardsjo); (9) "Making Children Aware of the Wonders of Nature" (Liselotte Johansson); (10) "You Have To Act To Make Changes" (Erik Thalling); and (11) "Children and Fire" (Karen Vilien).
