Neuroscientists Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang (who is also a parent) explain the facets and functions of the developing brain, discussing salient subjects such as sleep problems, language learning, gender differences, and autism. They dispel common myths about important subjects, such as the value of educational videos for babies, the meaning of ADHD in the classroom, and the best predictor of academic success (hint: It's not IQ). Most of all, this book will help you know when to worry, how to respond, and, most important, when to relax.

Good Lay Review of Brain Development
Would you consider the audio edition of Welcome to Your Child's Brain to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version.
What did you like best about this story?
The thorough review of the literature and wealth of examples. The book doe not really develop a story. It is more like an annotated bibliography of concepts and ideas.
What does Pete Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He's relatively invisible as the narrator. For this kind of work, that is a good thing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I like the book's attention to debunking myths. The authors do not cut frauds or stupid people any slack.
