She tellshow to teach a child to express herself through makingclay models, how to see these models as a process of selfdiscoveryfor the child. In her opinion, art is the best way forchildren to find their place in this world, to learn.
The author makes no attempt to teach or give iron-cladadvice — after all, every child is unique. The only thing her works try to communicateis the importance of observation: “Always observe. Try to truly know your child. Alwaystake his or her needs into consideration before your wishes!”
The third book in the series is devoted to the life and experience of the Austrian-Jewish painter Frederika (Friedl) Dicker-Brandeis.
