Every Child Has a Thinking Style: A Guide to Recognizing and Fostering Each Child's Natural Gifts and Preferences-- to Help Them Learn, Thrive, and Achieve

Front Cover
Penguin, 2006 - Psychology - 259 pages
For home, school, and play-simple, insightful strategies to help each child develop essential life skills.

Everyone has a natural thinking style-a set of preferences that helps with relating to the rest of the world. Using the latest research into how we think and learn, Lanna Nakone has divided children into four groups: penguins (maintainers), dogs (harmonizers), horses (innovators), and lions (prioritizers).

For each type, an organized world is a safe haven. 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.
