In The Early World by Elwin Richardson is perhaps one if the most significant books ever written on the education of children. It illustrates, without saying so, why the current education system that encourages passive learning is not the best way to learn. Does passive learning destroy rather than encourage true learning? The approach to education illustrated in the book In The Early World encourages active education, the importance of discovery and motivation to learn. It illustrates that we have the ability to discover and learn by ourselves in many ways. It teaches us why we need to know. This active approach to education awakens us and our capacity to go beyond simply knowing to true understanding.
