The Languages of Food: Recipes, Experiences, Thoughts. Edited by Ilaria Cavallini & Maddalena Tedeschi, 2008, $49.95

We are what we eat! But what do we eat? In Reggio Emilia the choice of having and keeping kitchens inside every municipal infant-toddler centre and preschool has a strong pedagogical and cultural meaning.

From this context comes a cook book made of good recipes, experiences, projects, thoughts.

These are some of the questions examined in this research project carried out from 1997 to 1999 by Harvard’s Project Zero and Reggio Children, involving teachers and pedagogistas from the Municipal infant-toddler centers and preschools of Reggio Emilia.

Mosaic of Marks, Words, Material. Edited by Vea Vecchi & Mirella Ruozi, 2015, $61.95

This catalogue presents the exhibition Mosaic of Marks, Words, Material, a collection of works by children who attend the municipal infant-toddler centers and preschools of Reggio Emilia.

Drawing and telling stories means imagining, analyzing, and exploring spaces, forms, colors, words, metaphors, emotions, rhythms and pauses, entering into a narrative dimension that is both internal and external to the self, playing on reality, fiction, and interpretation. Though drawing and words are autonomous languages, for the children words and stories, silent or spoken, almost always go hand in hand or intertwine with the drawing, creating an intelligent and often poetic mosaic. With this investigation we tried to better understand this interweaving, with the aim to restore to drawing, materials, words, and the children all the cognitive and expressive richness they generate.

One City, Many Children: Reggio Emilia, a History of the Present. Edited by Rolando Baldini, et al, 2012, $79.50

The narrative of One City, Many Children is developed through a number of broad themes: community participation, the active role of women and women’s movements, the politics of education in the city’s municipal administration, the ties between pedagogy and politics, the originality of pedagogical thinking of Loris Malaguzzi and of the Reggio Emilia education project, and the strong international identity of what is a local experience.

These themes, all topical and capable of generating new questions on education, are explored more deeply through contributions and considerations from architects, atelieristas, designers, academics, philosophers, photographers, teachers, pedagogues and pedagogistas, poets, film directors, scientists, writers and historians: the theory of the hundred languages of children shapes the construction of the narrative form.

The Hundred Languages of Children: the Reggio Emilia Experience in Transformation, 3rd Edition. Edited by Carolyn Edwards, Lella Gandini & George Forman, $49.95

Reggio Emilia is located in a fertile agricultural region of Italy. Famous for its city-run early childhood program, Reggio Emilia is recognized and acclaimed as having one of the best systems of early education in the world.

Educators in Reggio Emilia use a distinctive innovative approach that supports children's well-being and fosters their intellectual development through a systematic focus on symbolic representation. From birth through age six, young children are encouraged to explore their environment and express their understanding through many modes of expression or "languages," including verbal communication, movement, drawing, painting, sculpture, shadow play, collage, and music.

This book describes how the world-renowned preschool services and accompanying practical strategies for children under six in Reggio Emilia have evolved in response to the community's demographic and political transformations, and to generational changes in both the educators and the parents of the children. The authors provide the reader with a comprehensive introduction to the Reggio Emilia experience, and address three of the most important central themes of the work in Reggio in detail: teaching and learning through relationships; the hundred languages of children, and how this concept has evolved; and integrating documentation into the process of observing, reflecting, and communicating.

The Hundred Languages in Ministories: Told by the Teachers and Children from Reggio Emilia. Foreword, Carla Rinaldi; introduction by Amelia Gambetti & Lella Gandini, Davis Publications 2015, $44.50

In The Hundred Languages in Ministories, we observe the timeless, extraordinary stories first seen in the Italian edition of The Hundred Languages of Children, as Loris Malaguzzi originally intended. The stories offer messages of a positive culture of childhood and a chance to observe how an interactive education can prepare children to become active participants in their learning in the 21st century. We can also observe the attentiveness and competency of teachers as they construct meaningful experiences for the children. Children are the inquirers, supported by the teachers with time, space and simple yet engaging materials.


In Dialogue with Reggio Emilia: Listening, Researching and Learning. Carlina Rinaldi, $81.10

The early childhood programme of Reggio Emilia in Italy is acclaimed as one of the best education systems in the world and this book offers the unique insight of Carlina Rinaldi, the former director of the municipal early childhood centres in Reggio Emilia and successor to Loris Malaguzzi, one of the twentieth century’s leading pedagogical thinkers. Rinaldi has an enviable international reputation for her contribution to the Reggio approach and has given talks on the topic around the world.

A collection of Rinaldi’s most important works, this book is organized thematically with a full introduction contextualising each piece. It closes with an interview by series editors Peter Moss and Gunilla Dahlberg, looking at Rinaldi’s current work and reflections on Reggio's past, present and future.

Much of this material is previously unpublished and focuses on a number of questions:

  • What were the ideas and legacy of Loris Malaguzzi?
  • What is unique about Reggio Emilia?
  • What are the issues in education today and what does it mean to be a teacher?
  • How can educators most effectively make use of creativity?

Loris Malaguzzi and the Schools of Reggio Emilia: a Selection of His Writings and Speeches, 1945-1993. Edited by Paola Cagliari, et al, Routledge 2016, $80.95

Loris Malaguzzi was one of the most important figures in 20th-century early childhood education, achieving world-wide recognition for his educational ideas and his role in the creation of municipal schools for young children in the Italian city of Reggio Emilia, the most successful example ever of progressive, democratic and public education.

Despite Malaguzzi’s reputation, very little of what he wrote or said about early childhood education has been available in English. This book helps fill the gap, presenting for the first time in English, writings and speeches spanning 1945 to 1993, selected by a group of his colleagues from an archive established in Reggio Emilia. They range from short poems, letters and newspaper articles to extended pieces about Malaguzzi’s early life, the origins of the municipal schools and his ideas about children, pedagogy and schools. The book provides a unique insight into the background, thinking and work of Malaguzzi, revealing, in his own words, how his thinking developed, how he moved between theory and practice, how he border-crossed many disciplines and subjects, and how he combined many roles ranging from administrator and campaigner to researcher and pedagogue. Academics, students and practitioners alike will find this landmark publication provides rich insights into his life and work.

Edited by Paola Cagliari, Marina Castagnetti, Claudia Giudici, Carlina Rinaldi, Vea Vecchi & Peter Moss.
