A remarkable book. Whether you are an educator, parent, or simply a curious reader, you will come to see, hear, and understand children in new ways. Howard Gardner, author of Multiple Intelligences Adults easily recognize childrens imagination at work as they play. Yet most of us know little about what really goes on inside their heads as they encounter the problems and complexities of the world around them. Susan Engel brings together an extraordinary body of research to explain how toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary-aged children think. A young girls bug collection reveals how children ask questions and organize information. Watching a boy scoop mud illuminates the process of invention. When a child ponders the mystery of death, we witness how ideas are built. But adults shouldnt just stand around watching. When parents are creative, it can rub off. Engel shows how parents and teachers can stimulate childrens curiosity by presenting them with mysteries to solve, feeding their sense of mastery and nourishing their natural hunger to learn. A fascinating read for parents who wonder, simply, what is my child thinking? Why do they love collecting? Where did that idea come from? A celebration of childrens innovation and sense of wonder. Emily Oster, author of Expecting Better Combining insight, scientific acumen, and exquisite narrative, The Intellectual Lives of Children allows readers to peer into the minds of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers as they explore and learn in everyday moments, emphasizing what constitutes real learning.
