Summary
To a four-year-old watching bulldozers or chasing butterflies in a field, the world is awash with promise. Children come hardwired to learn in virtually any setting and about anything. Yet in today's preschools and kindergartens, learning has been reduced to scripted lessons and suspect metrics that undervalue children's intelligence while overtaxing their growing brains
Summary
Drawing on her strong foundation in the study of child development and early education, as well as her classroom experience, the author challenges the conventional wisdom about early childhood, encouraging parents to rethink how and where young children learn best
