    We often filter our interactions with children through the lens of adulthood. View the culture of childhood through a whole new lens. Identify age-based bias and expand your outlook on and understanding of early childhood as a culture. Examine various elements of childhood culture: language, the power of believing, artistic expressions, and social structure. Filled with research and stories from around the world, this book offers a multitude of different perspectives to relate to. Understanding children’s dispositions of questioning, wonder, engagement, and cooperation from the inside changes everything.
