For forty years, the experiences of the children, educators, families, and community of Reggio Emilia, Italy, have spoken to the great power and potential in every child. These experiences have stressed the ability of children to teach us to learn with joy, to tell story in many "languages," and to see the extraordinary in the ordinary. Today, advocates for children from all over the world study the work of Reggio Emilia through reading, discussion, and, whenever possible, visiting and studying the well-traveled exhibit, "The Hundred Languages of Children." For a limited time only, this exhibit will reside in Elyria and this affords us an invaluable opportunity to dialogue with the experiences of Reggio and to explore its meaning for our own work with youth in a library context.
