Good information, very dry. ( )

I read the Missing Alphabet , in exchange for review from Netgalley.com. The book was written by Susan Marcus, Cynthia Herbert, and Susie Monday. The book was published by Greenleaf Book Club Press.

I chose this book because I enjoyed critical thinking in college. The topic interested me. The book discussed how children will be affected in the future. How will children respond to their culture and environment. Parents need to educate kids on creativity, innovation, problem solving, and curiosity. Reading, writing, and math are not the basics anymore. Kids are sensory creatures-they like sounds, images, technology, and look for an immediate response and/or feedback.

Parents also need to teach kids observation and how making mistakes are ok. Kids also need to learn patterns, computer skills, nonverbal skills, conceptual skills, and individuality.

next, the book discussed the sensory vocabulary: line, shape, color, texture, space, sound, light, movement, and rhythm. I loved the book and I highly recommend it.
