What’s Going On In There
by Lise Eliot
This is a comprehensive compilation of brain research and it provides a lot of helpful insight into young children’s brains. Unfortunately it isn’t very practically applicable, readable, or useful in this format. There is so much information but not a lot of usability. While I appreciate the author didn’t draw unfounded conclusions the raw research is not as helpful as some of the other resources such as those written by Daniel Siegel.
- Extensive research has been done into the complex brains of young children.
- Having this available to reference is useful.
- It is long, I know that’s a common critique but this one is extremely long.
- Doesn’t really offer any practical or useful applications to the information for parents or teachers.
