“Consider the marvel of McDonald’s. Imagine that you were talking to a caveman who had spent all day hunting a woolly mammoth with nothing to show for it but a broken arm and some bruised ribs. You can tell him that there is this place where you walk in and order any food you want, as much as you want, and they give you the hot food you ordered and then they thank you.”
Needless to say, I enjoyed this book and felt it was a unique approach to the topic. If you have an interest in fostering your child’s curiosity (and what parent doesn’t), then take a look at this book.
By the way, did you catch my guest post on Imagination Soup? I’ve written quite a bit lately about the distinction between academic and play-based preschool. This piece addresses the issue again and reviews some of the latest research on the topic. Take a look at all the wonderful resources at Imagination Soup while you’re there.
