Simic, Marjorie R.; And Others
Designed to show parents how to turn their children's questions into opportunities for learning, this book provides advice, activities, books, and resources which prompt parents and children to remain curious learners. The activities in each chapter of the book will help children find ways to apply what they know and discover their personal interest and abilities. Chapters in the book are: (1) The Curious Learner; (2) Learning Science at Home; (3) Learning Math at Home; (4) Making History Come Alive; (5) Using the Library; (6) Making Writing Meaningful; (7) Appreciating Poetry; (8) Enjoying Art All around Us; and (9) Creative Expression through Music and Dance. Each chapter also presents lists of relevant books for parents, for children (in age categories 4-6, 6-8, and 8-10), and for parents and children to read together. (RS)
