Book Summary:

They're hallmarks of childhood. The endless "why" questions. The desire to touch and taste everything. The curiosity and the observations. It can't be denied-children have an inherent desire to know. Teachers and parents can either encourage this natural inquisitiveness or squelch it. There is joy in the classroom when children learn-not to take a test, not to get a grade, not to compete with each other, and not to please their parents or their teachers-but because they want to know about the world around them! Both Christian educators and parents will find proven help in creating a positive learning atmosphere through methods pioneered by Charlotte Mason that show how to develop a child's natural love of learning. The professional educators, administrators, and Mason supporters contributing to this volume give useful applications that work in a variety of educational settings, from Christian schools to homeschools. A practical follow-up to Crossway's For the Children's Sake, this book follows a tradition of giving serious thought to what education is, so that children will be learning for life and for everlasting life.

Book Summary:

Driven by an all-consuming passion, the plant hunters traveled around the world, facing challenges at every turn: tropical illnesses, extreme terrain, and dangerous animals. They battled piranhas, tigers, and vampire bats. Even the plants themselves could be lethal! But these intrepid eighteenth- and nineteenth-century explorers were determined to find and collect new and unusual specimens, no matter what the cost. Then they tried to transport the plants—and themselves—home alive. Creating an important legacy in science, medicine, and agriculture, the plant hunters still inspire the scientific and environmental work of contemporary plant enthusiasts. Working from primary sources—journals, letters, and notes from the field—Anita Silvey introduces us to these daring adventurers and scientists. She takes readers into the heart of their expeditions to then-uncharted places such as the Amazon basin, China, and India. As she brings a colorful cast of characters to life, she shows what motivated these Indiana Jones–type heroes. In The Plant Hunters, science, history, and adventure have been interwoven to tell a largely forgotten—yet fascinating—story.

An over-the-top celebration of pink, as told by a small girl with a BIG imagination! In this charming Beginner Book by New York Times best-selling author Diane Muldrow, a spunky young girl encourages readers to spot the different shades of pink in the real--and sometimes imaginary--world around her. From the pearly pink inside a shell to the rosy hue she'll paint the White House when she's President, this charming ode to a beloved color is ideal for reading-aloud or reading alone. With bright, cheerful illustrations by Mike Yamada, beginning readers will be (dare we say) tickled PINK! Originally created by Dr. Seuss himself, Beginner Books are fun, funny, and easy to read. These unjacketed hardcover early readers encourage children to read all on their own, using simple words and illustrations. Smaller than the classic large format Seuss picture books like The Lorax and Oh, The Places You’ll Go!, these portable packages are perfect for practicing readers ages 3-7, and lucky parents too!

Book Summary:

Bringing the lessons of Mister Rogers into the digital age Playful and practical, When You Wonder, You're Learning introduces a new generation of families to the lessons of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. By exploring the science behind the iconic television program, the book reveals what Fred Rogers called the “tools for learning”: skills and mindsets that scientists now consider essential. These tools—curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and more—have been shown to boost everything from academic learning to children’s well-being, and they benefit kids of every background and age. They cost next to nothing to develop, and they hinge on the very things that make life worthwhile: self-acceptance; close, loving relationships; and a deep regard for one’s neighbor. When You Wonder, You're Learning shows parents and educators the many ways they might follow in Rogers’ footsteps, sharing his “tools for learning” with digital-age kids. With insights from thinkers, scientists, and teachers—many of whom worked with Rogers himself—the book is an essential exploration into how kids and their parents can excel at what Rogers taught best: being human.

Book Summary:

This book will help you to understand what works for the growing brain, and (even more important) what doesn't! It is more and more evident that HOW children learn is much more important then WHAT they learn. Babies are born with a drive to learn, but as babies become children this drive can falter. What are the keys to keeping the momentum going, so children are ready for each stage of their childhood as they reach it? We can influence the quality of learning, without buying specialist DVDs, choosing expensive toys or becoming a 'helicopter adult” hovering over children and controlling everything they do. Busy parents and practitioners can make sure that the times they have with children are both enjoyable in the present and useful in the future. This book introduces you to some of the things that affect children's learning, explains these in readable terms, and gives you simple ways of making sure that children get the best start in their lifelong learning journey.

Book Summary:

A leading expert in childhood development makes the case for why self-directed learning -- "unschooling" -- is the best way to get kids to learn. In Free to Learn, developmental psychologist Peter Gray argues that in order to foster children who will thrive in today's constantly changing world, we must entrust them to steer their own learning and development. Drawing on evidence from anthropology, psychology, and history, he demonstrates that free play is the primary means by which children learn to control their lives, solve problems, get along with peers, and become emotionally resilient. A brave, counterintuitive proposal for freeing our children from the shackles of the curiosity-killing institution we call school, Free to Learn suggests that it's time to stop asking what's wrong with our children, and start asking what's wrong with the system. It shows how we can act -- both as parents and as members of society -- to improve children's lives and to promote their happiness and learning.

Book Summary:

What Every Parent Needs to Know is the bestselling, step-by-step guide to the new primary school curriculum from Toby Young and Miranda Bondy. What is your child learning each day in school? How can you tell if they are doing well or badly? And what can you do to help? This practical, detailed and user-friendly manual contains absolutely everything you need to know about primary schooling and the new UK curriculum, ensuring your child will succeed and flourish every step of the way. As parents we do the very best for our children in choosing the right school and preparing them for their very first day. But for the next seven years we have little idea what our child is learning, whether they are doing well or badly and what, if anything, we can do to help. What Every Parent Needs to Know changes that. It gives us, the parents, the details, the thinking behind and a thorough understanding of the brand-new primary school curriculum launching in September 2014. Taking us year-by-year through our children's schooling, we'll be given simple explanations of: - What they'll be taught and why (from phonics checks to SPAG tests) - What they need to know at the start of each year - What they should be able to achieve at its end - The games and exercises we can do at home to help out What Every Parent Needs to Know explains the confusing jargon while being otherwise jargon free and is written by two parents (who between them have nine children) with many successful years working in staff rooms and classrooms. Not only will this guide help you understand your children's journey through primary school, but it will also help you prepare, encourage and nurture them every step of the way. It's the manual every confused, unsure or worried parent has been waiting for. Toby Young is the outspoken columnist who wrote the international bestseller How to Lose Friends and Alienate People. A high-profile and passionate education reformer, he co-founded and set up two primary schools and wrote How to Set Up a Free School (2011) . Toby has 4 children, all currently at primary school. Miranda Thomas started teaching in 1990, coinciding with the very first national curriculum. She is now an A level physics teacher in Wiltshire, as well as being the Chair of Governors at her local primary school and a parent herself. Her youngest child is currently in Year 8.
