From the publisher

'It was the most liberating thing that ever happened to me, having children. The children's demands on me were things that nobody else ever asked me to do.' -Toni Morrison Children are a miracle, and everyone has an opinion on how we should raise them. From novelists to paediatricians; from Enlightenment philosophers to experimental psychologists; from parenting 'experts' to people whose expertise is simply - and powerfully - being a parent, Tiny Feet is the first anthology of its kind, showcasing a range of influential writing about children over the past four hundred years. Introduced by Lauren Child, and with contributions from Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Maria Montessori, Dr Spock, D. W. Winnicott, Toni Morrison and many more, this ideal gift book for soon-to-be parents shows the extent to which some of our attitudes have changed while others remain absolute, and reminds us of the joy that children bring to our lives.
