Create a Natural Learning Environment for Your Child

From the team that forever changed our view of how children learn, in their book How Your Child is Smart, comes a fundamental and intuitive prescription for natural learning right at home.

Natural learning starts at home. Anyone who spends time with young children recognizes their natural intelligence and resilient passion to learn. But as they try to meet the pressures and expectations of school, natural learning diminishes. Does it have to be that way? According to teachers Dawna Markova and Anne R. Powell, absolutely not. Whether a parent or educator, Learning Unlimited helps transform the homework hassle from a nightly struggle to an engaged learning initiative that uncovers the unique gifts of your child’s mind.

Learning from your child’s natural motivation. Filled with practical advice and compassionate support, this book is designed to honor your child’s innate intelligence with family engaged learning strategies. In Learning Unlimited, veteran teachers unveil how learning from homework can also function as a joint inquiry into your child’s special gifts. Designed for optimal parental involvement in education, this guide helps parents give children a competitive advantage by cultivating a life-long love of learning.

If you’re ready to take a step towards family engaged learning and have read The Gift of FailureThe Well-Trained Mind, or The Self-Driven Child, then you’ll love Learning Unlimited.
