Reviews

"The Gardener and the Carpenter should be required reading for anyone who is, or is thinking of becoming a parent ... Gopnik's science-based assertion is a welcome corrective to the prevailing culture of coaching and tutoring children" -- Isabel Berwick * Financial Times * "[An] elegantly readable and thoughtful book... It should be required reading for anyone involved in educational reform." -- Lara Feigel * Observer * "[A] thoughtful book... Gopnik shines when she describes the intricate world of children's play... This is a lovely book, and the life's work that animates it, will only deepen that bond, helping our children to flourish" -- Erika Christakis * Washington Post Sunday * "[A] fascinating and passionate diatribe." -- Bee Wilson * Guardian * "Gopnik's book seems a welcome burst of common sense ... fascinating." * New Scientist *
