Teaching Kids to Think Critically: Effective Problem-Solving and Better Decisions
This is truly a useful book, worth-reading. It is a clear presentation of critical thinking! It does not start in late high school or early university but way back at the beginning (see the baby on the cover!).
This book is fun and easy to read. It is very important that parents, teachers and anyone involved with children read this book. It gives you a lot of information in a direct way. It is also interesting and not complicated.
