If for kindness and benevolence with which this book is written, you will feel and the importance of what she speaks, perhaps, together with other similar books, it will make in your views one of the great and good of revolutions in the world.
Imagine a revolution that will bring the most remarkable change, but will do without bloodshed and suffering, without hatred and hunger, without death and destruction.
In this same kind of revolution there are only two of the enemy. First - obdurate traditions, the second - the status quo. It is not necessary to rooted traditions were dashed to pieces, and ancient prejudices disappeared from the face of the Earth. Do not destroy what still can bring at least some benefit. But what now it seems terrible, even gradually disappear as unnecessary.
Masaru Ibuka theory makes it possible to destroy such realities as ignorance, illiteracy, lack of confidence, and who knows, maybe will, in turn, reduce poverty, hatred and crime.
Masaru Ibuka book does not give these promises, but the astute reader will have all the time in front of the eyes of such a prospect.
This surprisingly good book makes stunning applications. The author simply assumes that young children are able to learn anything. He believes that what they learn without any effort at 2, 3 or 4 years in the future is given to them with difficulty or not at all given. According to him, the fact that adults learn with difficulty, children learn playfully. The fact that adults learn at a snail's children is given almost immediately. He says that adults sometimes too lazy to study while the children are ready to learn always. And he said it gently and tactfully. His book is simple, straightforward and crystal clear.
According to the author, one of the hardest lessons for humans is to study foreign languages, reading and learning to play the violin or piano. These adults master the skills to work, and for the children - it's almost an unconscious effort.
To keep our kids growing up, fluent in several languages, know how to swim, ride, oil painting, playing the violin - and all this at a high professional level - you need to be loved (and we do), respect (we rarely do) and provide them with all what we would like them to learn.
It is easy to imagine how the world will be richer, healthier, safer, if all the kids will know the language, art, science foundations before reaching adolescence, then used the following years to the study of philosophy, ethics, linguistics, religion and art, Science and so on for more prodvnnutom level.
It is not difficult to imagine how the world would be if children learn a great desire not dulled toys and entertainment, and to promote and develop. It is easy to imagine how much better the world would be if the knowledge of the three-year child hunger is satisfied not only Mickey Mouse and the circus, but also the works of Michelangelo, Manet, Rembrandt, Renoir, Leonardo da Vinci.
