Format: Hardcover
Everyone who has anything to do with children (parents, grandparents, teachers, aunts and uncles etc.) should read this book. Fabulously readable, global in reach, relevant, timely, and fun. It's a non-fiction page-turner. You will be gasping and sharing tidbits with friends.
Borrow it, buy it, steal it- read it.

I am still reading this one - so can't say truthfully if it's all good or not; but the portion I have covered so far makes a lot of sense.
Thanks
Janet

Format: Hardcover
I started reading as a worried parent, worried that I was going to end up being even more worried that I worried too much. Instead, I found a warm, sensible book that helped me understand better how to balance exposing my child to opportunities and enjoying our family time and his childhood.

Format: Hardcover
Carl Honore's book, "Under Pressure" should be compulsory reading for
every parent who has children under age 18. It is the best book I read
recently on the topic of over/under education, describing in great
details all the errors made by parents, by teachers and by school
programs that could be remedied by implementing the steps recommended by
Honore. The book is a jewel!

So relevant. Makes you think (and feel shamed) about what a child of the 21st century really goes though. Thought provoking and inspiring.
