Today, I’m giving away two copies of the audiobook Becoming Brilliant, by by Roberta Michnick Golinkoff and Kathy Hirsh-Pasek. The authors - long time researchers of all things learning and young children - also wrote Einstein Never Used Flash Cards - a book I am constantly recommending to new parents and teachers.
This is a great listen for anyone who loves to listen to their books on the go, and wants to get a deeper understanding of how we are preparing children for the world and workforce of the future.
Golinkoff and Hirsh-Pasek introduce their idea of the “6 Cs” in this book: collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence. When I listened to the explanation of these ideas, I thought about the young children that we work with in Early Childhood settings. The authors highlight the learning that happens in every moment of every day for young children: from walks to car rides to putting on their shoes, every day is filled with learning moments that help children connect with the real world on a deeper level.
