"Jo Fahey vividly depicts inquiry with young  children and challenges educators to imagine a new range of what is possible in early  childhood classrooms centered on learning through inquiry.  She shares compelling images of the multiple ways that inquiry can play out in the lives of young children when educators view inquiry as a philosophy rather than a specific set of procedures."
