Product Description

In this collection of one hundred and fifty quotes about children, Janusz Korczak captures all the insight and wisdom about being a parent. "When I approach a child, I have two feelings: Affection for what he is today and respect for what he can become." The life of a child is put onto a pedestal between these pages, and the personal experience is noted throughout the quotations.

Publisher's Description

Born in Poland in 1878, educator, physician, and legendary child advocate Janusz Korczak believed that simply understanding children is the key to being able to take care of them. It’s a basic premise too often overlooked.

This collection of one hundred quotations and passages from Korczak’s writings provides valuable advice on how to take care of, respect, and love every child.

In an inviting gift-book format, this is a heartfelt and helpful reminder of who we were as children and who we might become as parents.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

"While this volume of selections may seem slim, Korczak's insights are profound....Are you frustrated by something your child's done? Try seeing that child as a 'foreigner who does not speak our language...ignorant of our laws and customs...Treat his ignorance with respect.' In this perfect inspirational gift book, Korczak reminds readers that children are basically honest, so if they don't answer our questions, that's basically an answer; rather than lie, they're choosing silence.'"
