In Einstein Never Used Flashcards highly credentialed child psychologists, Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Ph.D., and Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Ph.D., with Diane Eyer, Ph.D., 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.
