Featherstone combine their knowledge and experience to give a wealth of practical suggestions about how to implement brain-based learning techniques in early years settings.

Clear references in The Thinking Child Resource Book direct practitioners to the appropriate pages of The Thinking Child for descriptions of the theory and research behind the practical suggestions Following the same structure as its predecessor for easy cross reference, this book gives advice on a wide range of techniques and activities such as how to engage the multiple intelligences, how to open productive dialogue with young children, how to select and use music, and strategies for increasing children's time on task. It lists more than a thousand ideas on how to use brain-based learning techniques for the foundation stage, including: *Twenty-one ways to foster positive self-esteem; *Forty ways to get creative; *Twenty-four ways to introduce children to ICT; *Seventy-five themes for interesting displays; *Thirty-six ways to involve parents; *Twenty-four activities for circle time; *Thirty ways to exploit VAK - visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning. Case studies, taken from a wide variety of settings, give an insight into how brain-based techniques can be used to enrich the learning experience of young children, while the four fictitious child characters featured in The Thinking Child are again used to represent some of the best early years practice. The experience of practitioners using The Thinking Child Resource Book will be as exciting as that of the children, as they continue on this brain-based learning adventure together.
