What does it take for children to achieve their full potential, take on life’s challenges, communicate well with others, and remain committed to learning? In “Mind in the Making,” a powerful resource for teachers and families, Author Ellen Galinsky covers the seven “essential life skills” that children need most; everything we can do with children to help them build these skills for today and for the future. Any child can learn them, any adult can teach them, they don’t cost money or require expensive equipment, and it’s never too late to begin.
[This book is] literally a mind-expanding contribution to the field and will have a huge impact on how teachers and parents think about and understand children’s learning and development, and hopefully their interactions with them.
