The author examines the first three years of the life of the child in relation to the three major achievements of that time: learning to walk, to speak, and to think.
Dr. Konig makes his philosophical approach clear at the outset when he says that one is dealing here with something 'more than instinct, more than adaptation, more than the unfolding of inherited faculties.' These are the three basic faculties that make us human, and their acquisition, Konig argues, is 'an act of grace' in every child. He goes on to provide a detailed analysis of this extraordinarily complex process.
'Konig brings us back to the miracles inherent in walking, talking and thinking, and shows how they are gifts, present from before birth but which unfold each in due course.' -- Education Otherwise
