An assemblage of affectionately written notes and photographs, Story of Laura, the original diary, chronicles the journey of one child's first months in an infant-toddler program in Reggio Emilia, Italy. It details the progression of eleven-month-old Laura's growth and milestones in the program and offers a unique perspective on her early child care experience.
Beautifully presented, The Diary of Laura includes a reproduction of the Italian diary, first published in 1983, next to the new English translation. Many of you will recognize the last entry-Laura's notable discoveries about a watch.
One of the few Reggio Emilia books focused on the infant and toddler years, the diary is a powerful tool for early childhood students and professionals. This account of Reggio-based care is an insightful model for observation and reflection.
