- The Hundred Languages of Our Children's Voices 

This is a dedication to those who believes that the child is the protagonist and every teacher, a researcher.

There are hundreds of different images of the child. Each of us has, inside ourselves, an image of a child that allows us to relate to a child. This image influences us to act and behave in a certain way: how we talk, listen and observe the child. 
As educators, our image of the child is where the teaching really begins. I believe that children are active and curious learners from birth. They are competent, full of potential and capable of building their own theories. Each child is like a collector: personal experiences and relationships within his environment make up the content of his collection. While constructing his own knowledge and making sense of the world, he uses the ‘hundred languages’ to express himself, ask questions, seek clarifications and share ideas with others.
