Description

An eclectic showcase of the most influential writing about children from the past four hundred years.

Children are a wonder, a blessing, a miracle, and everyone has an opinion on how we should raise them. From novelists to pediatricians and from modern parenting "experts" to child psychologists, Tiny Feet is the first anthology of its kind, showcasing a range of the most influential writing about children over the past four hundred years. Published chronologically, the extracts featured in this delightful compendium show the extent to which some of our attitudes have changed while others remain absolute, and remind us of the joy that children have always brought to our lives.

Contributors include:  Erik H. Erikson on the meaning of play; Marvin J. Gersh on how to raise children in your "spare time"; Naomi Stadlen on how parenting books undermine parenting by reducing it to a number of essential tasks; and Donald Winnicott on "the good-enough mother."

Plus: memoir, fiction, and further opinion from Daniel Burgess, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, Isabella Beeton, Charles Darwin, Robert Louis Stevenson, James Sully, Maria Montessori, Bertrand Russell, Margaret Mead, Jean Piaget, Harry F. Harlow, Benjamin Spock, Marvin J. Gersh, Toni Morrison, Lydia Davis, Alison Gopnik, Giuseppina Persico, Cleon C. Mason, Bernardine Evaristo, Ella Cara Deloria, John B. Watson, and Rosalie Rayner.

About this Author

Lauren Child is an English children's author and illustrator best known for her Charlie and Lola picture books, which were adapted into a children's television show; the Clarice Bean series, for young teenagers; and the Ruby Redfort novel series, about an undercover agent and mystery solver. She has also illustrated many books, including classics such as Pippi Longstocking and the Anne of Green Gables series. Child introduced Charlie and Lola in 2000 with I Will Not Ever Never Eat A Tomato and won the UK's annual Kate Greenaway Medal from the Library Association for the year's most distinguished illustration in a book for children. For the fiftieth anniversary of the Medal, a panel named it one of the top ten winning works, which comprised the shortlist for a public vote for Britain's favorite. Child was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2010 New Year Honours and Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2021 Birthday Honours for services to children's literature.
