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.

The Diary of Laura includes reflective essays from:

Review by: Howard Gardner, Harvard Graduate School of Education - January 1, 2012
Several fine books have been written about the remarkable schools for young children in Reggio Emilia, Italy. But I know of no work like this one. Beginning with careful observations of the one year old Laura, it evolves into a set of searching reflections by educators from different nations on the nature of human growth, learning, and renewal.
