Jill’s celebrated book ‘Unearthing Why’, co-authored with Clare Britt, brings together rich stories from practice that celebrate children’s capacity to learn and think together.

A must read for all educators of young children!
Unearthing Why – Stories of Thinking and Learning with Children is a collection of stories offering a distinct and hopeful outlook for the future of education. Each chapter invites you to consider the complexity and beauty of children’s capacity to learn, think and be together. Jill McLachlan’s and Clare Britt’s retelling of their experiences learning alongside children in prior-to-school and primary school based contexts will gently, but compellingly, invite you to join them in considering the deep purposes of education — questioning the ‘whys’, just below the surface, that inform ‘what’ and ‘how’ you teach.
