Gifts for your littlest learner to stretch their imagination

"We must place ourselves inside the heads of our students and try to understand as far as possible the sources and strengths of their conceptions." Howard Gardner, The Unschooled Mind

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a parent and a teacher is getting to know each child's uniqueness. Understanding their likes and dislikes and their ways of thinking.

This holiday season, I'll share educational gifts that appeal to children's various interests. I'll share gifts for booksworms and engineers, artists and athletics. The holidays are a fun time for caretakers to acknowledge a child's true self and help to support her identity as a learner. First up, gifts for your little bookworm (my favorite).
