Gesine Abraham has worked with preschool/kindergarten children for over forty years. Her book, Preschool Education, Keeping the Magic Alive, was written in response to the concerns of parents and teachers. Are children not being unduly pressured into being super-kids? Are children not losing something vital and precious in the process? Most parents feel there is something wrong with the system that robs children of their childhood. The author encourages parents to trust their instincts. Drawing on Waldorf Education, perennial wisdom teaching, and child development specialists, the author places the child's magical consciousness within a broader framework of human potential. From this vantage point, a deeper insight into the inherent purpose and value of early childhood is gained. The author asks, Do we really want to place our children on a fast track to be overly competitive in a materialistic world? It is far better to work with and nurture the glow and wonder of childhood rather than erode it prematurely. Working with the glow is what age-appropriate parenting and right teacher practices are all about. This provides a spiritual foundation for a more fulfilling life.About the Author:
