On the (IM)Possibility of taking care: Israeli early education teachers have their say

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


February 14th 2001 was another routine day at preschool, or so I thought. It had been a long session reading and discussing “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein (“Once there was a tree and she loved a little boy. And every day the boy would come and he would gather her leaves … ”). By 10:30 the children were clearly getting tired of talking about generosity and began to fidget. A group of girls seized a pause in the discussion to rush over and hug the teacher, successfully bringing the proceedings to a final halt. The teacher was called to the telephone; her assistant brought in the children’s bags. The children, by that time very hungry, pounced on their bags, dug in deep for their food and drink. Silence, apart from the sound of energetic munching.
