Observations on Sara's First Eight Months by Her Mother
Fresco, Grazia Honegger
NAMTA Journal, v41 n3 p337-347 Sum 2016
Grazia Honegger Fresco gives us direct observations of her daughter from birth to eight months, grouping her observations by age even further into birth to fourth month, fifth and sixth months, and seventh and eighth months. Within each age range, she focuses on Sara's sensory life and her relationships. Her observations are detailed and gentle as she strives to be free of preconceived judgements. She offers a lovely example of what it means to use observation as a tool to learn the inner life of the child. [Reprinted from "The NAMTA Journal" 15.3 (1990): 50-57.]
