Summer time is a perfect time for reading–next to the pool, on the front steps while the kids ride bikes outside, on the comfy chair next to an open window….I love reading and wish I could do more of it.
Too bad I have all these kids running around. They put a damper on my reading time. ;)
I am pleased to introduce you to a new book, released this month, called Light Up Your Child’s Mind by Joseph Renzulli and Sally Reis.
Based on the renowned “Renzulli Method,” which has been adopted in schools all over the country, Light Up Your Child’s Mind presents a practical program to help children fire up a love of learning to last a lifetime. World-renowned experts Drs. Renzulli and Reis illustrate the crucial role parents can play in their children’s development and address how they can work with teachers to enhance their children’s education. They uncover the hidden potential of daydreamers, rebels, and one-track minds, arguing that gifted behavior–basic smarts, high levels of task commitment, and creativity–can be fostered in bright children, even unmotivated ones. Step by step, LIGHT UP YOUR CHILD’S MIND will show parents how to set their kids on the path to a rewarding future.
With chapters like “”Beyond the Classroom,” “Tuning in to your child’s preferences in learning style and expression,” and “Performance vs Potential” there is something for every family. I am really enjoying reading it as I get ready for school to start up again.
