Description:

This book comes with access to a downloadable (.pdf) Study Guide written by the author exclusively for this special NAEYC edition.

How can we help children thrive in life and as life-long learners?

As a faculty member at Bank Street College of Education, researcher, and president of the Families and Work Institute, Ellen Galinsky has spent her career pursuing the “essential life skills” children need to cope with modern life and achieve to their full potential. These seven skills are

  • focus and self control
  • perspective taking
  • communicating
  • making connections
  • critical thinking
  • taking on challenges
  • self-directed, engaged learning

This book sescribes strategies for teachers in their classrooms--and for families at home--to foster these critical cognitive and social-emotional skills.
