Parenting Books Giveaway, Part I: Light Up Your Child's Mind (8/20) CLOSED

Thursday, July 30, 2009 Posted by Dina N

Hachette Book Group is about to release two fascinating new titles that are definitely on my to-read list! The first one, Light Up Your Child's Mind, falls into the education, family, and relationships category, and is co-authored by Joseph Renzulli, Sally Reis, and Andrea Thompson. The second book, NurtureShock, will be published in September and is written by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. I am happy to introduce both!

Book Description
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.

    I haven't read many parenting books since I had my baby. I liked The Happiest Baby on the Block, and found that many of its suggestions worked for us! Thanks for the giveaway.
