Books I Want My Kids to Read Someday #81: “Einstein Never Used Flashcards"

Best Nonfiction Book - Einstein Never Used Flash Cards

 Dear kids,

Einstein Never Used Flashcards: first of all, what a great title. And the book by Kathy Hirsh Pasek and Robert Michnick Golinkoff really delivers on it–seriously. It’s probably the starting point for homeschooling families looking for the latest information, stats and techniques on the science of learning. Whether or not you’re one of these families, read this for help facilitating your child’s education–and your own.

A few main points:

  • Play is learning.
  • Asking questions and having conversations is learning.
  • Memorization isn’t helpful without understanding and context.
  • There are seven different kinds of intelligence. IQ isn’t everything—not even the main thing—to concern yourself with.

Get Einstein Never Used Flashcards on Amazon. Or see Einstein Never Used Flashcards on Goodreads.

Love,

Mom
