"The Myth of the First Three Years: A New Understanding of Early Brain Development and Lifelong Learning," by John T. Bruer. Book Review.
Brown, William H.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v15 n2 p269-73 2000
Summarizes Bruer's work, which questions the prevailing emphasis on the first 3 years as most critical to brain development. Notes that the book both elucidates a "blueprint" for mounting an effective public awareness campaign, and provides an excellent synopsis of implications of contemporary neuroscience for early childhood education and public policy affecting young children and their families.
