According to Bradway, a communication disorders specialist, children are born with an innate tendency to absorb information primarily through either visual, auditory, or tactile means. As they grow, they tend to cultivate the skills corresponding to their preferred style of learning, at the expense of others that do not come as easily. The authors' intent is to help parents determine a child's learning style and use this knowledge both to strengthen natural abilities and to develop skills that might be lagging. Each chapter focuses on one stage of development, from infancy through eighth grade, and presents case studies of distinctive learners. A topic relevant to the age group is then discussed, and specific suggestions for toys, games, and activities that enhance each learning style are offered. This clearly written and practical book offers a proven approach to improving children's social and academic skills. Recommended for parenting collections.- Linda Cullum, Lake Superior State Univ.
