Janusz Korczak’s masterful volume is a compendium of the knowledge necessary for both parents and teachers who want to discover the lives of their children. Korczak was one of the most important educationists of the 20th century, albeit not of the systematic kind. He propagated a single principle from which all action flows: that of unlimited respect for children. This esteem, fed by unlimited love, flowed into his very pragmatic guidelines for raising children.
