<DIV>“Drop the flashcards—grit, character, and curiosity matter even more than cognitive skills. A persuasive wake-up call.”—<I>People</I><BR><BR>Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in <I>How Children Succeed</I>, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and self-control.<BR><BR><I>How Children Succeed</I> introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators, who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories—and the stories of the children they are trying to help—Tough reveals how this new knowledge can transform young people’s lives. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do—and do not—prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to improve the lives of children growing up in poverty. This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.<BR><BR>“Illuminates the extremes of American childhood: for rich kids, a safety net drawn so tight it’s a harness; for poor kids, almost nothing to break their fall.”—<I>New York Times</I><BR><BR>“I learned so much reading this book and I came away full of hope about how we can make life better for all kinds of kids.”—<I>Slate</I></div>

<DIV><P><I>Art Workshop for Children</I> is not just another book of straightforward art projects. The book's unique child-led approach provides a framework for cultivating creative thinking and encourages the wonder that comes when children are allowed to freely explore the creative process and their materials.<BR /><BR /> As children work through these open-ended workshops, adults are guided on how to be facilitators who provide questions, encourage deep thinking, and help spark an excitement for discovery.<BR /><BR /> Children explore basic materials and workshops that use minimal supplies, and then gradually add new materials to fill the art cabinets as well as new skills and more complex workshops. Most workshops are suitable to preschool-aged children, and each contains ideas for explorations and new twists to engage older or more experienced artists. </P><P>Interspersed throughout are sidebar essays that introduce perspectives on mess-making, imperfection, the role of adult, collaborative art, and thoughts on the Reggio Emilia method, a self-guided teaching philosophy.<BR /><BR /> These pieces underscore the value of art-making with children, and support the parent/teacher/care-giver on how to successfully lead, question, and navigate their children through the workshops to result in the fullest experiences.</P></DIV>

This book makes explicit connections between young children's spontaneous repeated actions, and their representations of their emotional worlds. Drawing on the literature on schemas, attachment theory and family contexts, the author takes schema theory into the territory of the emotions, making it relevant to the social and emotional development strand in early childhood education. </p><br /><p></p><br /><p>Based on research carried out alongside children, parents, workers and co-researchers at the world-famous Pen Green Nursery, and using case studies of a small number of individual children, the author shows new links between cognition and affect. The book includes a brief summary of a method of Child Study, using video and reflections on video sequences. </p><br /><p></p><br /><p></p><br /><p>This book will be of interest to students and practitioners on Early Childhood undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as those taking modules on schema theory.

Did you know that keeping the gut healthy is very important in raising a healthy child? This book is for every parent or caretaker who wants to raise happy and healthy children. Research has shown that the gut microbiome is linked to every system in the body. It affects the body throughout life by controlling the digestion of food, immune system, central nervous system and other bodily processes. If the gut microbiome is altered, sickness is inevitable! Each child is only as healthy as their gut microbiota! Through the experience of raising my children and seeing children in my practice, I learned early on that these bacteria that live in our gut can have profound effects on a child's life! My goal is to educated children, parents and caretakers that food is not only eaten by us ... but by the bacteria that lives in us. If we make the right choices, our children can live a life of health and vitality.

<h2>“Let’s play math!”<br /></h2><p>In the theme of recess, where a treasure chest of balls, ropes, and toys would be kept for children to play with, this book holds a deep and imaginative collection of fun mathematical ideas, puzzles, and problems. Written for anyone interested in or actively engaged in schools—parents, teachers, administrators, school board members—<strong><em>Math Recess</em> by Sunil Singh and Chris Brownell </strong>shows math as a playful, fun, and wonderfully human activity that everyone can enjoy… for a lifetime!<br /></p><p>“<em>Math Recess</em> is a breathless ride!” —<strong>Kimberly Morrow-Leong</strong>, NCSM 2018 program chair, author of <em>Mathematize It! </em><br /></p><p><em></em>“I absolutely adore this book. With clarity, power, and exuberance, Chris and Sunil spell out and make concrete what it means to play.” —<strong>James Tanton</strong>, PhD, founder of the Global Math Project<br /></p><p>“Here’s to the dabblers. The tinkerers. The fantasizers. The curious ones who believe math education can and should be about play. Here’s to the humanity of friendships that lead to mathematical love. Sunil Singh and Christopher S. Brownell are bold. Go, be bold with them. All are welcome.” —<strong>Mary Kemper</strong>, president of the Texas Association of Supervisors of Mathematics<br /></p><p>“Through rich storytelling and powerful examples, Singh and Brownell make the clear case for upending math education as we know it and replacing it with an ideology we can all embrace: Mathematics is and can be deeply learned through play.” —<strong>Denis Sheeran</strong>, author, <em>Instant Relevance</em> and <em>Hacking Math</em><br /></p><p><em></em>“Disruption begins with ‘Re.’ Rather than trying to fix a broken system, it is time to reimagine a new one, and <em>Math Recess </em>completely satisfies my appetite for destruction.” —<strong>Brian Aspinall</strong>, educator, author of <em>Code Breaker</em> and <em>Block Breaker</em><br /></p>
