Excellent!!!! Our culture tells us to send our children away sooner, after reading this book, we pulled all kids out of school and gave them some time to learn from mommy at home. We'll start homeschooling in a couple of years when they are ready!!!
A classic with much to teach us.

A revelation to read, especially in this time where pre-school and "reading" and worksheets are pushed earlier and earlier and earlier. It was refreshing, and caused me to rethink and recast many thing. Bottom LINE: slow down and let the child do the learning in the best possible environment which, wherever possible, is often home, for as long as possible (in most situations. . . ). And stop thinking you are "gaining" something by pushing when, in fact, you are losing a great deal with these little ones--things that are irretrievable.

an alternative view

i like this book because it offers an alternative view to "early childhood education" - a philosophy that is being pushed hard at all parents and teachers today. i have a young son who is intelligent enough to be formally schooled, but not MATURE enough. trying to get him to sit and learn for long periods has been a battle. this book shows that it is probably actually better to wait until he is older. it was refreshing to hear the voice of an expert saying that young children (especially boys) should not be schooled until 8 or 9 years of age. i highly recommend this book.
Required read for all parents

I wish all parents would have the chance to read this book before deciding to send their kids to day care or school. If we could understand how early schooling and the lack of respect for the natural developmental stages children go through as they grow, impacts their lives forever, we as a society would be more careful to hastily compare our selves with other nations and cultures apparently more successful at educating their young than we are, and we would be more mindful for what is good for kids in the long run. Our standards would be based on success and happiness by adulthood instead of how well we look on international academic testing.
