In this book, I share with you an alternative to the 'school' of today. A way of creating the conditions for you to go on an adventure with children. Education should not be a predetermined journey with map already drawn, with no ability to leave the path or pause. It should be a co-adventure.
This co-adventure can only take place when we take the first step into the unknown. This can feel daunting and can open us up to questions and uncertainty. However, once we do take that first step, an adventure lies ahead like no other - an adventure so magical that it can and will change everything. And the reason that this adventure is so special is that it will take you into the very soul of children and of yourself.
In these pages, I offer you an invitation. It comes from my head and heart to speak to yours. It is not didactic. It is a way to create the conditions for the magic of children to thrive.
