As an educator who has been following the Reggio Emilia project for about ten years now, Dancing with Reggio Emilia has been a great delight and inspiration to read. I read it on my return from the Reggio Emilia International Study Week in 2015. During the week the book was given to Robin Duckett as a gift from our Australian friends and it fell to me to write a review. I consider myself fortunate. Immersed in the ethos and principles of the Reggio Emilia project and having visited several of the Pre schools and Infant and Toddler centres, I longed to understand how the values and themes explored on the study week, worked on a daily basis. Dancing with Reggio Emilia does just this! It is a 'fly on the wall' insight into life and learning in two Reggio Schools – and much more.
