    The biggest problem with this book is the fact that although much of it is science based the author, Joe Pearce doesn t have a science oriented degree although he does have a Master of Arts degree and some post graduate studies under his belt Also, the text, although still highly relevant, is a bit outdated 1977.The main premise of the book is written on the cover this book will help you rediscover nature s plan for our children And, really, Pearce does make a promising case, except for some far fetched mystical situations he poses such as healing a bleeding wound simply by willing it to stop, and bending of spoons with the mind There is however another realm of interpretation that the author makes room for, which is that reality is truly subjective and that we need to trust ourselves instead of fearing the unknown, and there are some positive messages about power coming from within for us adolescent and adult folk, the ending seems to tie together some messages that stretch beyond the childhood we ve left behind It is not a disappointing read for those of us who do not have children yet.This book is VERY unschooling related and focuses on a new concept of intelligence not as memorization of facts, but of ability to respond to and assimilate new information muscular mindedness recognizing and meeting the needs of children right from birth seeing children as whole people, while understanding their current developmental stage recognizing and responding to our own needs understanding that intent precedes ability the learning cycle stress assimilation neuroscience, how people learn, and stages of learning how children move from concrete to abstract thought why being a late reader is a positive thingSome key movements this text seems to support natural birth, attachment parenting, unschooling, radical unschooling except for his very 1977 aversion to television Also, even though Pearce apparently attended a theological college, his writing has NO religious slant whatsoever, though in general he takes a very earthy and mystical approach to living.I m interested to see what Pearce discusses in his sequel, Magical Child Matures I m curious about how his concepts apply to older children, adolescents, and adults.

    An interesting idea that children should be left to encounter the earth until about age 11 That all of our children have lost the connection to the planet by having to go to school so early I wonder how he thought his readers should implement his ideas.I also didn t agree with his idea that women in 3rd world countries do birth better They may do the emotional part of birthing betterif the baby and mother survive the birth process With few hospitals, or clinics it s hard to see how their life is better.I d take interest in his ideas if he wrote a sequel on the how to s of his ideas in the modern world.

    WOW That s really all I can say Not at all an easy read, but intense and life changing Very few books have that power but this is definitely one of them.

    3.5 5 Pearce s take on development is opinionated, but I think that the ideas he works with are mostly accurate Yes, the work is heavily influenced by Piaget, but it was also first published in 1977 There are times when Pearce skates a little too close to the edge of woo particularly in the chapter about child psychics and telepathy , but then, as the title Magical Child suggests, Pearce seems somewhat receptive to magic as a concept The book suffers from Pearce s writing style, which isdry And repetitive And at times almost incoherent As I already mentioned, though, I think that Pearce is mostly working on sound ideas It s where he sometimes takes those ideas that presented problems for me His claims that children should not be taught to read until they re eleven almost made me spit out my coffee And no man has any business talking like he understands what it s like to experience childbirth But aside from some of these not insignificant issues, Magical Child is a classic and is worth readingif you can get through its difficult style.

    I gave up reading this book after 100 pages I found it to be hard to read, depressing, and woefully out of date written in the mid 1970s While it s nice to know that we ve come a long way in the positive direction since sedated childbirth and scheduled bottle feedings, the idealization of Ugandan women and the way they give birth and rear their children up to age 4 is a bit ridiculous I d like to see the author go through childbirth However, being a child of the 70s, I think I came out okay despite the birth experience and formula feeding So, I won t feel bad about not reading the rest of the book.

    wonderful I didn t finish it, because its long and it was due back, but it was truly wonderful while it was relevant to me and the stage of development i was experiencing I will borrow the book again in the future, after some time has passed, because it will be interesting to keep this book as a beacon towards raising an intelligent, intuitive self and child Its a great counter story to the fear and anxiety based development stories that exist, and it was incredibly refreshing to hear an Optimal story of development and to set the standard as such I particular enjoyed the description of the optimal story of pregnancy and childbirthing Definitely a must read for anyone expecting a baby, who may have fear in their body the chapter establishing the matrix describes a peaceful, conscious pregnancy, and a gentle birth, as well as the moment days after birth It describes the transition from womb water element into breast air element, and ways in which the gentle, conscious momma accommodates the babe so that it may feel safe in his new matrix ohh wonderful.

    mind blowing book, this is a re read for me, wish I d read it before I had my children I agree with 90% or of it, I only don t quite buy the premise of delayed education Between this and Evolution s End, I think I read into them the first time around, a little disappointed the second time for each, but the premises, the ideas are there that I am so for exploring some I definitely got of the concrete concepts this time around, it might take a couple times or exploring current research into the areas discussed here to fully develop my own philosphy and understanding of the materials I highly recommend this author and these books for a starting point into discovering our brain mind connections and potential abilities.

    This book is based on Jungian approach to child rearing The claim is that by nature, a child is vividly exploratory and it is our culture that tames that out of him In a rather new age claim to an almost eatern mysticism, this book would appeal to parents with high spirituality and less of an empericist attitude I enjoyed this book, even though I am not particularly New Age in any way It is still about balance and harmony of who we are.

    It is a very interesting book that describes the child development from a new and provocative perspective psychological, social, esoteric and spiritual It is a good parenting book I see it as an interesting complement to actual child development psychological theories.

    This is by far, the second most important book I read while pregnant with my son The first is Magical Child Matures, which is essentially a second edition of this book But it is not a phoned in second edition It contains substantive differences.
