To care and educate our young children we must understand and listen to them. Childhood and (Post) Colonization opens the door to the effects of intellectual, educational, and economic colonization of young children throughout the world. Using a postcolonial lens on current educational practices, the authors lift those practices out of reproducing traditional power structures and push our thinking beyond the adult/child dichotomy into new possibilities for the lives that are created with children. Not just as theoretical discussion of the 'child', the actual lives of children are brought to bear on developing a new framework for thinking about the care and education of young children.
