Usually I pick a book of the week for the little ones, but this week I've had my head wrapped around our new "sports-themed" Creative Movement curriculum. I've been spending time with my nose in some of my favorite "teacher resource" books. So this week, I'm sharing my absolute favorite book that breaks down how our little bookworms grow: What's Going on in There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life by Lise Eliot, Ph. D. This book is a great tool, both for those experienced with early development and those who are new to the subject. Dr. Lise Eliot could not be more perfect to write this book, since she is a mother of three AND and a neuroscientist. While the book is detailed and scientific, I find Eliot's detailed explanations easy to follow and extremely helpful. I highly recommend it for understanding what is happening in your little bookworm's head! Happy learning!
