The whole brain child

The whole brain child is a book that has been recommended to us by Bryce's teachers at Children Circle Nursery. 
For me, this book was a completion to The Happiest toddler on the block by dr Harvey Karp. The book deals, as the title implies, with the child brain and how it works and develops throughout its growing and how much better we can do as parents, knowing and understanding how to deal with our kids at this level.
As dr. Karp beautifully explains in his book how the right brain takes control over the left brain, especially in little kids (1-4 years old), the Whole brain child takes you a step forward and explores the brain world a bit deeper, talking you about the "upstairs and down stairs brain", presenting real life examples and situations on how to deal and connect with your child emotionally from toddler years 'til 20 years old.
Although, sometimes, the book seems a bit to heavy in academic content, it's a well written book and there is a lot of helpful information in it.
As I stated above, I will highly recommend it as a continuation of dr. Karp's journey.
