An invaluable aid for parents focused on giving their children the best possible start in life, this guide outlines practical tips to help provide children with major advantages in both the classroom and the playground. It distills key findings from the very latest international cognitive science research into short pieces covering an array of areas, including the importance of teaching a child positive thinking patterns, the benefits of hugs on brain development, how to help a child tackle math and science, the best age to learn a new language, and the benefits of good nutrition.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Medical practitioner Pan and research scientist Woods (Duke Univ.) compile some key findings from the latest cognitive science research into one- to two-page summaries, confirming what most of us already know—breast is best, kids need hugs, and sugar doesn’t make you hyper. Labeled 1-100 and written in a concise and zippy style, the authors offer a new format more than anything, but that makes it perfect bathroom reading.
VERDICT Stick it in the magazine rack next to the toilet where it is probably likeliest to be read by both mom and dad. The book’s cover is worth bonus points.
