The first graduated brilliantly in Educational Sciences and in 2015 successfully opened the first family nursery in Civitavecchia in the province of Rome.

They co-wrote and published the book Le 3 F.

The afterword of this manuscript is edited by Professor Matteo Villanova, holder of the Chairs of Child Neuropsychiatry, Preventive Medicine and Forensic Psychopathology, Psychomotor Education, Criminology; director of the Observatory Laboratory for the Protection of Emotional Respect for Developmental Age (O.L.T.R.E.E.E.)

The subtitle is as a means of communication in early childhood because not only were the fairy tales told verbally, but they were dramatized through the traditional theater and the characters were played by the children themselves.

The 3 F was born a bit by chance, a bit for fun.

It is a collection of fairy tales, fairy tales and nursery rhymes. Hence the title, because all themes begin with the letter F.
This book arises as a means of teaching and above all is addressed to educators of the childhood community, pedagogists, teachers and to those who are interested and can be traced back to the use of imagination as a means of communication.

Within the book there are various definitions.

The definition of Fable.

The term fable comes from the Latin “fabula” that is to say, to tell. The fables are very ancient, of popular origin and have been handed down by word of mouth.

From the Latin fabula, derivation of Fari “to speak”, “spoken”, “told”. The fairy tale has a long oral tradition, contains all the elements of the culture from which it derives and is an instrument for the dissemination of values.

In common language, fairy tales and fairy tales are often used as synonyms, but in reality the only thing that associates them is the indeterminate temporal space.

The definition of Nursery Rhyme.
It most likely derives from the word “filatessa” that is “long line, long series” and also from the Tuscan term “Filastroccola”. The nursery rhyme is a short poem with repetitions of syllables, punctuated with recurring rhymes and chords. It had an importance in oral transmission as regards popular traditions, in fact it was already used in ancient times to pass on knowledge, teachings and memories.

Listening to a story, a fairy tale or a nursery rhyme allows the child to activate the development of “narrative thinking”, that is the cognitive capacity through which individuals organize their existence by providing it with meaning.

The narrator must, therefore, adapt the language to the age and learning abilities of the child, respect the pauses, modulate the voice and change tone according to the character.

Being in a circle is a way of keeping us in relationship with each other. This geometric shape, in fact, enhances the sense of belonging to a group, in which, at that precise moment, there is no “boss”, but we are all equal. You can look into each other’s eyes and in this way the educators can really see what happens in each child.

These stories help children to develop the area of ​​language and communication, to relate to the outside world, that is, they help them in the so-called positive sociality, and allow the child to differentiate reality from fantasy.

At the end of each fable there is a caption to explain what material was used for the description of these stories.

Each story has been conceived with a specific purpose such as insertion, to brighten the daily routine, for example to explain the theme of separate collection to apologize, please, the value of the family, the importance of grandparents and teach a Proper nutrition.

It was no coincidence that I wanted to conclude this collection with the nursery rhyme of “The bubble” by G. D’Annunzio. The reason is really simple, for the authors the soap bubble reflects a bit what happens to the baby in the nursery. Each child arrived on tiptoe, shy and insecure, just like the soap bubble is at the beginning, then the little one develops his abilities, his potential, his talents, as well as the bubble blowing little by little. takes shape. We mean that with the passing of the days, even the children, making new experiences, have taken their “shape”, their own identity, their own character, their own way of expressing themselves and facing everyday life and how the bubble detaches from the straw, even the little ones have learned to deal with separation from their parents. The 3 Fs of the authors Laura and Marzia Buoni invite us to reflect empirically.
