In this age of "let's let technology do the training" this book is
a breath of fresh air. It stresses (without preaching) the
importance of real life human interaction as a means to helping our
children's brains develop properly. It encourages physical, mental
and emotional interaction to help shape a well-rounded individual.
I think it should be mandatory reading for people who do childcare
as a profession -- so many in-home caretakers use electronics as a
means to babysit not realizing how negatively this can affect a
child's development. - Academic's Choice Awards
