Summary
The late education reformer explains how children naturally acquire knowledge of the basics from everyday life at home, to show that learning is an innate human activity that need not be coerced
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
How small children begin to read, write, count, and investigate the world, without being taught

The essence of John Holt's insight into learning and small children is captured in Learning All The Time. This delightful book by the influential author of How Children Fail and How Children Learn shows how children learn to read, write, and count in their everyday life at home and how adults can respect and encourage this wonderful process. For human beings, he reminds us, learning is as natural as breathing. John Holt's wit, his gentle wisdom, and his infectious love of little children bring joy to parent and teacher alike.
