Einstein Never Used Flash Cards: How Our Children Really Learn–and Why They Need to Play More and Memorize Less
Children don’t come with instruction manuals, but sometimes it seems like everyone has an opinion on how to make your child into a mini-Einstein
A winner of a “Books for a Better Life” award, this book sifts through years of developmental research to give you a clear message: learning really happens through playtime.
As the authors explain how to make the best of your time with your child, they show you how to practice their own three “R’s”:
REFLECT: Stop and ask if a formal, structured activity is right for your child and whether you’re reducing the time that she could spend learning through play.
RESIST:Just say no to stuffing your child with information and do so knowing that the research in this book backs you up.
RE-CENTER:Reassure yourself that you made the right choice, because growing up should be full of play, not work.
More than a book about parenting, this guide is a joyful celebration of childhood and the imaginative and nurturing play that should be so much a part of it.
