Hi folks,

My nephew just turned 3, and I'd like to get the following books for his mom:

1. How Children Learn, John Holt

2. How Children Fail, John Holt

3. The Teenage Liberation Handbook, Grace Llewellyn

 

Anyone have any of these and willing to pass them on? :-)

Ahh I see that... interestingly, How Children Fail only has 3 wishes, 2 in line ahead of me... How Children Learn I'm 26 of 26. Teenage Lib, 81 of 84. LOL

Ok guess I'll just be buying them ;-)

I read all of three of those, and did not feel the need to own them or reread them. So if you can find the titles in your public library, that would be good. Some books I feel like I really need to own so I can refer back, but John Holt's books stick with you after one reading. I hope you find them!
