A helpful general reference, particularly for young children, but it also explains the abstract shift that occurs around age twelve. Ms. Healy explains, in terms of brain development, why dilling basic skills at an early age isn't always the best bet in the long run. In the process, she gives parents plenty of intelligent ideas for use with their children. Has helpful checklists for development.

A wonderful primer on how a mind forms. Like anyone with young children, I am fascinated by how my son experiences and learns about his world. When you read about some of the science behind it, it becomes even more amazing.
