Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Meticulously researched, combining charm and erudition, humor and humanity, The Scientist in the Crib...should be placed in the hands of teachers, social workers, therapists, policymakers, expectant parents and everyone else who cares about children.” (The Washington Post)

“The Scientist in the Crib is a triumph, a clear-headed account of the kinds of things that go on in the heads of young children....[This book] speaks in the voice of intelligent parents talking to other intelligent parents--witty, rather personal, and very well informed.” (T. Berry Brazelton, MD, Harvard Medical School)

“This book is a valuable addition to parents’ libraries...After reading it, parents can be enthralled as they watch their new babies imitate and learn the ‘rules’ of communication and speech learning. What an interesting book by three eminent ‘baby watchers!’ (T. Berry Brazelton, MD, Harvard Medical School)

“This book is at once a masterful synthesis of the latest findings about the minds of children and a provacative argument that young children resemble practicing scientists. Few books about human development speak so eloquently to both scholars and parents.” (Howard Gardner, Ph.D., author of Intelligence Reframed: Multiple Intelligences in the 21st Century)

“[An] excellent should be of interest to anyone curious about the human mind and its origins.” (The Chicago Tribune)

Présentation de l'éditeur

This exciting book by three pioneers in the new field of cognitive science discusses important discoveries about how much babies and young children know and learn, and how much parents naturally teach them.It argues that evolution designed us both to teach and learn, and that the drive to learn is our most important instinct. It also reveals as fascinating insights about our adult capacities and how even young children -- as well as adults -- use some of the same methods that allow scientists to learn so much about the world. Filled with surprise at every turn, this vivid, lucid, and often funny book gives us a new view of the inner life of children and the mysteries of the mind.

Ce livre qui décrit l'incroyable parcours des apprentissages de tous les bébés aurait dû être traduit dans toutes les langues et se trouver sur la table de chevet de tous les papas et mamans.Il remplacerait avantageusement de nombreux guides pour les parents. Les bébés sont encore beaucoup plus merveilleux qu'on ne puisse s'imaginer. Lecture obligatoire!

Livre certes interessant mais trop focalise sur les possibilites du cerveau du nourisson.

Ecrit par des scientifiques, ce livre vous explique la capacite extraordinaire du cerveau dans la petite enfance a enregistrer des choses et potentiellement faire apprendre plusieurs langues a l'enfant sans difficulte ceci jusqu'a l'age de 8ans. Cet apprentissage devenant plus difficile apres.

Mais ce livre n'aborde pas les aspects de l'environement immediat de l'enfant.

C'est donc un livre scientique avec etude de cas, mais dans un seul domaine precis, ce qui rend la lecture un peu fastidieuse.

Livre en anglais.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Purchased for school, but excellent for expecting mothers 31 août 2016

I purchased this book as required reading for a developmental physiology class in college, but it is still on my bookshelf. The information in this book is insightful and it is a good read. I purchased this book 14 years ago and still remember what it says about how babies develop language skills and their ability to hear differences in any language in the beginning but fine tune their language skills within months of birth. This will be something I re-read when I have my first baby. I highly recommend it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Scientist in the Crib 10 juillet 2010
Par Janice Krahenbuhl - Publié sur

Since I read about this book in Time magazine and got a copy for myself, I have given it as a "welcoming gift" to my friends and relatives when there's a new baby. Oh, how I wish this had been available when my sons were young. They just turned 50 and 47. I'm delighted with the men they have become and have few regrets about their "upbringing." But, it would have been so much more fun and intriguing to be able to "play" with them appropriately with language and observe what they did.

When I was working on a master's degree in linguistics, I was exposed to Noam Chomsky's views on the acquisition of language. It was very intriguing. I learned that the hypothesis that there is a "mother tongue" for all language, called "the hearth language" is a fallacy. It is the brain that encourages speech. Other animals have the same "structures" that we doand do not "speak."

When I purchase books through AMAZON, I always look through what is available in the "used" portion of their offerings. I have not ever been disappointed with the quality of books that I find there. I enjoy the thought that I am helping small businesses succeed and get rid of inventory so they can expand their resources.

If you are curious about what is going on inside babies' minds, then you will love this book. My uncle has been a pediatrician for 30 years and recommended this book when I mentioned that I wish I knew what my baby was thinking. It's fascinating how babies learn so much so quickly.

The author is very knowledgeable and informative.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A great resource for parents and teachers 11 juillet 2001
Par audrey frances - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book presents the latest research concerning child development, but does so in an accessible and friendly way. This is not a how-to book, rather containing information about how children learn and develop over time. Chapters include: What Children Learn About People; What Children Learn About Things; What Children Learn About Language; What Scientists Have Learned About Children's Minds; What Scientists Have Learned About Children's Brains.

To a small extent the book suffers from the usual dilutory effects of having multiple authors. They also try to be a bit too cute sometimes, but this does not overly detract from the book's success as a layman-friendly introduction to child development research.

There is a very useful Notes section, References, and a good Index.

My advice, for all it's worth: If you are going to get one book about child development research, get Lise Eliot's 'What's Going On In There?', which is less precious, more extensive, and better organized. If you are going to get two books, add this to your list. I find myself referring back to the former book fairly often, but I do browse through this one occasionally as well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Baby brains are amazing! 16 mai 2011

I recently attended a National Math Educators Conference with the intent to focus on very early childhood and numerical understanding in an attempt to ensure that my 9 month old twin grandsons have every advantage in early numeracy when the time was right for their brain development. The most valuable thing I picked up at the conference was the recommendation from one of the presenters for The Scientist in the Crib, by Gopnik, et al. I had a hard time putting this fascinating book down. It's filled with delightful details about how babies brains develop in relation to nature, nurture, and interaction with the caregivers around them. There is an excellent review of the findings from early researchers such as Piaget and Vigotsky, and lots of description of recent researchers experiments which make a strong case for the power of even the tiniest infant's brain. As a grandmother it was great fun to recognize my own grandchildren's behavior in several of the vignettes.
