Amazing. If you thought Brain Rules was a good read, you will love this one. This book answers questions that teachers, parents, and future parents have asked for years! Plus, John Medina addresses many of the myths we hold very sacred in how we raise children. Whether raising a child or working as an early childhood educator, you will turn each page and think to yourself "this is the book we have been waiting on for a very long time." I know kids don't come with an instruction manual...but this book is pretty darn close. As an educator, uncle, cousin, and future parent, the things I have learned from this book will have an impact on my next interactions with little brains...I just keep telling myself, seeds and soil!
