Like all good learning environments, an important ingredient in the Constructing Modern Knowledge was the classroom library. The following is a bibliography of the books in the CMK08 library, plus a bunch written or illustrated by Peter Reynolds and a few books I forgot to bring to Manchester.

Don’t forget there is a creativity, computing and constructivism Amazon bookstore created by the Constructivist Consortium.
