Einstein Never Used Flashcards: How Our Children Really Learn--and Why They Need to Play More and Memorize Less is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Now Available in Paperback!

In this book two highly credentialed child psychologists offer a compelling indictment of the growing trend toward accelerated learning. It''s a message that stressed-out parents are craving to hear: Letting tots learn through play is not only okay-it''s better than drilling academics!

Drawing on overwhelming scientific evidence from their own studies and the collective research results of child development experts, and addressing the key areas of development-math, reading, verbal communication, science, self-awareness, and social skills-the authors explain the process of learning from a child''s point of view. They then offer parents 40 age-appropriate games for creative play. These simple, fun--yet powerful exercises work as well or better than expensive high-tech gadgets to teach a child what his ever-active, playful mind is craving to learn.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teacher Approval! As a teacher who has seen countless parents try to cram too much into their kids, I appreciate the wisdom in this book. The authors do a fabulous job of breaking down the skills children develop and use during play, making it easy for parents to understand the value inherent in simple games and interactions. I read it as a teacher, have recommended it to parents, and now will purchase it as a parent myself.
