About the book:

The completely updated and expanded version of the 1987 classic hailed by parents and educators everywhere. A Practical guide to brain development and learning from birth to adolescence. In the present climate of goals for pre-school children and the pressure on schools to do well in league tables, children have come under pressure to fit into formal learning at younger and younger ages. This book is an inspiration to any parent who wants to help to nurture their individual child's potential, by offering sensible suggestions to learning problems, and a reassuring voice to over anxious adults. Based on clear scientific information, Jane M. Healy explains how the physical growth of the brain affects the child's abilities to learn at each stage of development, how every stage needs time to express itself and that pushing too far too soon can be harmful. This excellent and easily read book is a must read for parents. It gives parents a realistic view of what children are and are not capable of at different stages in their developement. It helps us realize just what our children's capabilities are and how to maxamize our teaching. Dr. Healy's writing style is very easy to read, informative and lively. The chapters are laid out in such a way as to make it easy to find any area of interest. She gives anecdotal stories to underscore the information she presents, which makes it much easier for a layman to understand. This is an important book to have in your home.
