Product description

Review

"The Gardener and the Carpenter should be required reading for anyone who is, or is thinking of becoming a parent ... Gopnik's science-based assertion is a welcome corrective to the prevailing culture of coaching and tutoring children" (Isabel Berwick Financial Times)

"[An] elegantly readable and thoughtful book… It should be required reading for anyone involved in educational reform." (Lara Feigel Observer)

"[A] thoughtful book… Gopnik shines when she describes the intricate world of children’s play… This is a lovely book, and the life’s work that animates it, will only deepen that bond, helping our children to flourish" (Erika Christakis Washington Post Sunday)

"[A] fascinating and passionate diatribe." (Bee Wilson Guardian)

"Gopnik's book seems a welcome burst of common sense ... fascinating." (New Scientist)
