My son is entering first grade in the fall, and I'm glad that I had the opportunity to read this book. As the parent of a gifted child, it's important for me to know how to challenge my son. This book is packed with tips, activities, games, fresh ideas, and book recommendations that I can use to supplement what my child is learning in school. The practical advice on relating with the teacher and avoiding homework problems is great. I feel prepared to start the school year armed with this information.
