Timberdoodle's review Learn more
If you have ever emailed Timberdoodle a question concerning curriculum recommendations, odds are good that the return email asked what we consider the most pivotal of questions: how does your child learn best? And typically the parents' response will be puzzled, vague, or uncertain. My friends, these things ought not to be this way! Every teaching parent needs to be an expert on his child's learning style. Why? Because children, and adults for that matter, have very definite ways that they best learn.
While most learners can gradually adapt to another style, often that of the teacher, when under stress, i.e. every new learning opportunity, they will learn better employing their own God-ordained learning style. And for those children that are less adaptable, learning opportunities can become major battlefields when they are forced to learn in a way that seems impossible to them. You can have the most glorious curriculum, identical to what your friend with brilliant children used, and it will be a dud for your child if the learning style is not correct for him.
In "Talkers, Watchers, and Doers"; Cheri Fuller not only helps you to identify learning styles as auditory, visual, or kinesthetic; more importantly she helps you target teaching techniques that will be most effective for your child. Aimed at the family with school-bound children, the author also does a thorough job of covering the flexibility of the home school situation with many practical suggestions. Once you know how your children think and learn, then you will know how to help them succeed scholastically.
Create a specific learning environment for each of your children, equipping them with study skills to match their unique personalities.

Do you know your Child's Learning Style? November 8, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
Knowing your child's learning style will unleash your ability to teach them in a way that they can really learn and understand. Talkers, Watchers, and Doers: Unlocking Your Child's Unique Learning Style is a good way to help you understand the differences and to determine which represents your child.  If you have read other books on the topic, than this seems to pretty much rehash what is already out there. However, if you are new to the topic, this is definitely a great resource. Excellent for beginning homeschoolers!

Really interesting, even for older moms. February 23, 2010
Reviewer: Georgia Bonney from East Haven, CT United States  
I had already read Motivating Children by this same author, and found it to be pretty basic and unhelpful.  But, this book is very interesting, and, since I am the mother of 14 children, reminded me of some of the more creative ideas I had when my first children were young.  Sometimes, it's easy to get stuck in a rut when you have so much to do, but this book reinspired me and gave me new energy to work with some of my younger children who have different abilities than my older ones.  It's definitely worth a read.
