Now Available in Paperback!In Einstein Never Used Flashcards highly credentialed child psychologists, Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Ph.D., and Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Ph.D., with Diane Eyer, Ph.D., offer a compelling indictment of the growing trend toward accelerated learning. It's a message that stressed-out parents are craving to hear: Letting tots learn through play is not only okay-it's drilling academics!Drawing on overwhelming scientific evidence from their own studies and the collective research results of child development experts, and addressing the key areas of development-math, reading, verbal communication, science, self-awareness, and social skills-the authors explain the process of learning from a child's point of view. They then offer parents 40 age-appropriate games for creative play. These simple, fun--yet powerful exercises work as well or expensive high-tech gadgets to teach a child what his ever-active, playful mind is craving to learn.

Really good book, sometimes a bit hard to read, but has some really interesting stuff in it. It explains reasearch conducted that is exaggerated then has us parents belive we have to play classical music to our kids and have them reading before they are 3 ect. Good book would reccomend it to all parents especially ones that are spending a fortune on educational toys.
A big thank you to the authors.
