Based on both current research and decades of work with children, The Missing Alphabet goes beyond the 3R’s to engage children with the creative thinking process, the capacity to invent with many media, the ability to think across disciplines, and the reliance on (and joy in) the imagination. To turn these ideas into action, there is a Field Guide of activities for parents and kids to do together at home, in museums, and around the neighborhood. The Missing Alphabet is a practical resource for building the confidence and creative thinking skills our children need to thrive in the new millennium.
Where will our children get the creative thinking skills they will need to become effective innovators in the future? The Missing Alphabet is a comprehensive guide for parents.
