Just as in Alice in Wonderland, children, with all their questions, philosophies and constant demands to know “why”, invite us to enter the territory of wonder. To do this, we must make sure not only to go beyond the clearly defined boundaries of adult rationality, but also to open ourselves up to the unexpected and the unpredictable, which brings with it a new logic associated with Childhood. It boils down to welcoming the questions of children both inside and outside school, as well as expanding the space of freedom of expression between the adult and the child.
