The Importance of Being Little by Erika Christakis

The Importance of Being LIttle (2016) is all about the powerful and curious minds of children, and the way our current preschool educational standards of testing and standardized worksheets limit their natural skills. These blinks explain why a focus on the personal development of each child is a much better strategy.

Who should read these blinks?
  • Parents curious about alternatives to the current American preschool system
  • Anyone interested in early childhood development and education
