Recommended to Beth by: fascinating op-ed by the author!

A fascinating topic: what do babies and young children think, how do their thought processes work, and what have we learned about how they learn? The author covers numerous topics and research studies thoroughly, but her writing style is not very engaging for the most part. Still, a good "read" that turns some past wisdom and theories about young children's thought process upside-down.
