A Quiet Happy Place, A Children’s Introduction to the Labyrinth
By Melinda M. Cropsey
(2017) HP Publishing, Longmeadow, MA.
This first ever “children’s introduction” to the Labyrinth is a feast for the imagination! It encourages children to enjoy this magical space and create labyrinths of their own, using whatever tools at their disposal… “From Fruit Loops to Flower Petals, Lincoln Logs to Linguini!” Simply follow the labyrinth seed pattern and you’ll enjoy hours of fun creating labyrinths of your very own.
Perhaps more importantly, A Quiet, Happy Place helps little ones to see the Labyrinth as a place of peace… The Labyrinth’s absence of tricks and challenges makes it a refuge… “A place where you can’t mess-up”, and an ideal space in which to reconnect to what Maria Montessori referred to as “The Intelligence of the Heart.”
