The purpose of this book is to expound and defend the great powers of the child, and to help teachers to a new outlook which will change their task from drudgery to joy, from repression to collaboration with nature ... Already the psychic life in the new-born has aroused great interest, scientists and psychologists having made observations of babies from three hours to five days after birth. The conclusion is that the first two years of life are the most important ... So here begins a new path, wherein it will not be the teacher who teaches the child, but the child who teaches the teacher.
