- Educators can nurture children's imagination and creativity through explorative processes.
- Teachers' characters directly reflect on their capacity to teach.
Teach Me to Fly contains a myriad of exciting ideas regarding early childhood education, inspired by the theories of meta-thinker Shrii P. R. Sarkar. He said, "An educator's aim is to motivate a child to desire to assimilate the entire universe."
Adults can encourage children to see the universe as a tapestry with every thread, every aspect, interwoven with all else. As children tug and pull at knowledge, they unravel mystery everywhere. Teachers relish in the mystery and excitement of learning along with children. Teach Me to Fly offers a provocative discussion of early childhood education from a spiritual angle that will soft en the hearts and sharpen the minds of adults caring for young children.
