Taking the body as a locus for discussion, Rachael S. Burke and Judith Duncan argue not only that implicit cultural practices shape most of the interactions taking place in early childhood curricula and pedagogy but that many of these practices often go unnoticed or unrecognized as being pedagogy. Current scholars, inspired by Foucault, acknowledge that the body is socially and culturally produced and historically situated—it is simultaneously a part of nature and society as well as a representation of the way that nature and society can be conceived. Every natural symbol originating from the body contains and conveys a social meaning, and every culture selects its own meaning from the myriad of potential body symbolisms. Bodies as Sites of Cultural Reflection in Early Childhood Education uses empirical examples from qualitative fieldwork conducted in New Zealand and Japan to explore these theories and discuss the ways in which children’s bodies represent a central focus in teachers’ pedagogical discussions and create contexts for the embodiment of children’s experiences in the early years.

Nature versus Nurture: Michael quickly summoned me to his offi ce, where his pet spider is housed in an aquarium, feeling strange about the idea of having an arachnida for a pet. As Michael set me on a miniature ottoman in front of the arachnid’s home – the terrestrial environment he provided, my skepticism promptly transformed into fascination. One single spider had reproduced a sac housing hundreds of precious eggs soon to hatch to ‘young ‘uns’, sadly to the demise of its mother upon their births. The gleaming gossamer of spider silk which I had learned in my zoology and biochemistry classes to be the strongest fi ber known, even stronger than steel. One benefi cial lesson we humans can learn from this creature is an allimportant one – recycling. Once the web is destroyed, the spider swallows this delicate lace, and re-uses its protein in re-building the next structure! Nothing should be wasted, even the most despised creature learns from its Creator. The eyes have seen, the ears have heard the wonders of God’s miraculous creation! Yet regrettably some people live to say that there is no God! Given a glimpse of his home I fi nally saw what Michael meant in his expression and sentiment over the difference in our homes. Michael may not see or admit, but, as he spoke of my home I can feel the yearning in his voice, and I also audibly hear the ache. Mr. Kamo Toyatori can rest assured that his legacy passed on to his son will live on. This legacy weighs heavily on his son’s shoulders, but will not give up. His son is simply incapable of doing so; his son aware that it could only lead to his own fi nancial ruin. Michael will labor day and night, he needs to wary not to plant himself in less exalted ground than what he deserves, and that which his father expects.
