They Way They Learn Sep 23, 2008
Very interesting read. I thoroughly enjoyed the book; it was easy to discover my own way of learning, but figuring out my children's styles of learning is/was a little more difficult. Overall, this book is a valuable resource which I'll read and refer to often.
After listening to Cynthia Tobias, I had to get it! Aug 12, 2008
I went to a seminar by Cynthia Tobias (the author) and laughed so hard I cried, as she described herself and other strong-willed people to the audience. She was also describing me, my husband, and at least one of my five children.
I read through the book in about a week, and pencilled in my children in the diagrams, and quizzed my husband on all the questions. The best part about each chapter is the "ten commandments" and "In a nutshell" section for each learning style. A lot of these ideas and truths, I already was aware of, as a teacher, but I had never applied them to my own family; just to my classroom and to my own curriculum. Having everything laid out so simply has been wonderful, and I have learned better not only how to treat my students in classes and my own children, but also how to discipline more effectively as well as communicate with my husband! A must have, I think, for any mother, homeschooling or not.
Thank you Cynthia, for a fanTASTic seminar, and a great resource!

Great book for parents and teachers in helping bring out the best of your child's skills and talents.
A life saver! Jan 12, 2008
My daughter has been struggling with reading and I found this book by accident. I could not put it down and read it in two days. It has already helped us so much! As I read about various qualities of auditory and kinesthetic learners, I would think 'that's her exactly!' This book offered some hands-on practical tools. For example, now we do hand motions when we are practicing a new word. She gets it immediately (the spelling) and retains it!
The book also gave me a good starting point to do additional research on learning styles, and I found several helpful websites and articles on the topic. I think now of all the times we told my daughter to sit still while practicing reading, and now I get that she actually needs some movement, however small, for her brain to learn in the best way for her. Thisd is a great resource!

I'm sharing it Sep 10, 2007
This book is so easy to read and wonderfully helpful. I found myself laughing at myself and my husband. I loved it so much I'm ordering a copy for my friend. I'd recommend it for all parents homeschooling (such as myself) or not (such as my friend).
