Ever wonder what is going on in a baby's brain? Or how you can best nurture a child's natural development? Or why exactly Bach is better than Mozart for babies? This book will explain why. No technical knowledge is necessary, as Shore makes recent neurological findings accessible to all those who come into contact with young children. Everything a baby experiences in his or her first five years is building the foundation of life's learning potential. Through increasing the complexity of the early childhood environment in developmentally appropriate ways, we can nurture young children's brains. Developing Young Minds is a must-have for new parents or caregivers of young children.
Rebecca Shore is an associate professor in the Department of Educational Leadership at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Editorial Reviews

As a practicing pediatrician, I'm delighted to find Dr. Shore's readable, practical book.  She is able to take the most complex research on neural networks, the history of music, and child development and weave it into stories that are familiar and accessible.  The last chapter, in particular, is filled with age-appropriate tips on stimulating development for young children.  A very welcome addition to the shelf of "must have" books on parenting and early childhood education.
