Using the metaphor of a tree, Dr. Stanley Greenspan explains that the roots represent how children take in the world through what they hear, see, smell, and touch. The trunk represents thinking skills through which children grow both academically and socially. From these, the brancheschildren’s basic abilities to read, write, do math, and organize their workdevelop.
Both parents and early learning professionals will especially welcome the sections on finding and solving learning problems early. With Dr. Greenspan’s characteristic wise optimism, this book raises the ceiling” for all children who learn differently or with difficulty.
STANLEY I. GREENSPAN, MD, the worlds foremost authority on clinical work with young children and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics at George Washington University Medical School, died shortly after finishing his work on this book.
NANCY THORNDIKE GREENSPAN is the author of The End of the Certain World. This is the fourth book on which she has collaborated with her husband.
RICHARD LODISH is Associate Headmaster at the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C.
Publishers Weekly, 8/2/10
"Pre-eminent psychiatrist and early childhood expert Stanley Greenspan collaborated with his wife, Nancy Thorndike Greenspan, in their fourth book together, the culmination of many years of research…With their developmental approach, the Greenspans focus on practical ways to enhance thinking-based rather than memory-based learning. Several chapters contributed by Richard Lodish, an educator at the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., demonstrate how Greenspans methods are used in the classroom and will be of particular interest to teachers."
"The Greenspans approach to improving the learning skills of learning-disabled children is laid out in the form of a tree: trunk, roots and branches. Not surprisingly, it is a very well-conceived conceptual framework…Give[s] specific examples of ways to build basic and advanced thinking, then show[s] how the thinking levels work in a school setting…Despite its overt focus on children with learning disabilities, its structural elements really apply to all children as they grow, learn and develop."
