As a parent we have a lot of influence over our children and while we cannot (and likely should not) attempt to control everything they do, what we present our children with impacts what they can and will do. The book, “The Missing Alphabet” is one that helps parents see a new way to think of what our children “need” to know. We teach them the alphabet and their numbers but what about the sensory alphabet the book discusses?
We are in a fast-moving, competitive age. Children are learning things younger and are capable as always. When we engage children, they learn more. This book is a practical guide that gives real life examples in how to help our children with that missing alphabet of social-emotional being/learning/thinking.
As an attached parent of a preschooler and a toddler, I’m looking for ways to help them explore and learn and also for me to be reassured that I’m not being indulgent. Having such things as textures and 3D items (not tv!!!) that are ways for children to act/be/live are important. This book was reassuring and extremely practical. It reads like a guide with space for your notes. This book is about teaching/learning and being as parents and giving our kids the ability to succeed through creative thinking.
