Publisher's Summary

In just a few years, today's children and teens will forge careers that look nothing like those that were available to their parents or grandparents. While the US economy becomes ever more information-driven, our system of education seems stuck on the idea that "content is king", neglecting other skills that 21st century citizens sorely need.
Becoming Brilliant offers solutions that parents can implement right now. Backed by the latest scientific evidence, this book introduces the "6Cs": collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence, along with ways parents can nurture their children's development in each area.

Absolutely Brilliant!

ECE/new mom here!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely! I don't have a tonne of spare time so this was a great way to read the book but also get some other stuff around the house done.

What did you learn from Becoming Brilliant that you would use in your daily life?

The 6Cs make so much sense to me, as a mother, and as an Early Childhood Educator. I try to bring a lot of these concepts into my class, but it's good to see a specific structure with real examples.
