Authors: Jeff and Annie Wiesman
From birth to age six, children have an amazing ability to learn. EDUCATION BEGINS AT BIRTH offers advice to parents on how to maximize potential and raise smart kids. If you are a parent of an infant, toddler, or preschooler, this is the perfect book to help you nurture your little one’s developing mind. It includes essential tips, strategies, and practical things you can do to: (1) create early educational experiences through play and discovery; (2) grow the whole child—including academic, social, emotional, physical, and character development; (3) inspire creativity, curiosity, and life-long learning; (4) actively educate your kids without adding to your already busy schedule; (5) provide a head start so they are ready for school.
Dr. Jeff and Annie Wiesman teach parents how to create a growth-oriented environment where young children learn beginning concepts in math, science, literacy, social studies, and the arts. They include a wide variety of fun activities and a detailed description of what to expect and what to teach at different developmental stages. Connect the principles in this guide with the teachable moments that occur in everyday life and you will help your kids develop essential skills for success in school and beyond.
