With Stars in Their Eyes: Brain Science and Your Child's Journey Toward the Self
By Sharifa Oppenheimer
In this book readers will find not only a heart-filled rendering of the gentle ways young children have been traditionally raised and educated, but also cutting edge research that supports these practices. With love as the foundation, and through the neural tapestry created by joyful movement, music, art, stories, and play, we feed and bathe the young child’s brain. These deep connections with life are woven together during childhood to become the wholeness we call “I.” Each chapter offers ideas for bringing this new science and these time-honored ways into the home and classroom.
