This is the book I have been waiting for. Lifelong Kindergarten is filled with gems―thoughts about what learning in the 21st century needs to be like, brought to life through evocative and nuanced examples that fire up our own imaginations. Many of us have danced around this topic but no one has hit the bull's-eye like Mitch Resnick has done.―John Seely Brown, Former Chief Scientist of Xerox and Director of Palo Alto Research Center (PARC)
Whether you are a parent, educator, or academic researcher, you will delight in this book. As founder of MIT's Lifelong Kindergarten research group and creator of the programming language Scratch, Mitch Resnick not only illuminates the rich history of scholarship on creative thinking but succeeds in bringing it to life through the experiences and practices of young people around the world.―Margaret Honey, President & CEO, New York Hall of Science
Mitchel Resnick has long been an inspiration to those of us who study the roots of innovative thinking. Lifelong Kindergarten is not only essential reading for educators trying to cultivate 21st century skills in the classroom; it's also a vital resource for anyone―parents, entrepreneurs, artists―interested in the creative mind at work and at play.―Steven Johnson, author of Where Good Ideas Come From and How We Got to Now

There are sections titled "In Their Own Voices" which are mini-interviews. I wasn't as impressed by those - I would have preferred to hear more of Resnick's stories about Projects, Passion, Peers and Play from his own experiences.
I did not grate it as 5 stars because of all his samples are among Scratch, Clubhouse and Lego. I expect more stories around the world, even around the MIT Lab, such as their studies about Kids interactive with AI technology. I hope his next book will bring us more insight about AI influence on kids education as a lifelong study agent.
Any way, this is a very good book for parents to read.
