The Spark: A Mother's Story of Nurturing Genius

by Kristine Barnett

Random House of Canada | April 9, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Spark: A Mother's Story of Nurturing Genius is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.

The extraordinary memoir of a mother's love, commitment and nurturing, which allowed her son, originally diagnosed with severe autism, to flourish into a universally recognized genius--and how any parent can help their child find their spark.
 
Today, at 13, Jacob is a paid researcher in quantum physics, working on extending Einstein's theory of relativity. Diagnosed at 1 with severe autism, at 3 he was assigned to life-skills classes and his parents were told to adjust their expectations. The goal: tying his own shoes at 16. Kristine's belief in the power of hope and the dazzling possibilities that can occur when we keep our minds open and learn to fuel a child's true potential changed everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best books I have ever read I love that this is a true story. Kristine is one amazing Lady, I could hardly put the book down. My Mom just read it in TWO DAYS! It is a great example of believing in your children, determination and tenacity, and truly an inspirational read for any human being. I read my copy slowly as I didn't want it to end. : )
