The books that I found most helpful in my kids' education and development

1) About how they learn and what they should learn: (In my opinion, the priority is from A)motivation/ethics B)habits/character C)skills/knowledge)
  1. NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children by Po Bronson
  2. Understanding by Design by Grant Wiggins, Jay McTighe
  3. How People Learn by Committee on Developments in the Science of Learning with additional material from the Committee on Learning Research and Educational Practice and National Research Council
2) Set up the learning environment and plan for your child’s development (If you are looking for secret of success, plan ahead…)
  1. Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
  2. Talent Is Overrated by Geoff Colvin
  3. Talent Code by Daniel Coyle
3) Prepare yourself for parenting (How you behave yourself actually is more influential on your child’s growth than what you buy or prepare for your child.)
  1. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
  2. Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua
  3. How the Mind Works by Steven Pinker
