In this fresh, practical, and insightful guide, Lanna Nakone gives parents a new way to understand and encourage children's thinking styles, sensory preferences, gender, and personality tendencies to help them tailor their child's environment to make it a safe, more learning-friendly place. Stories, illustrations, and concrete step-by-step instructions show readers how to give children the support they need to reach their full potential.
