|Summary, etc.:|| While the U.S. economy becomes ever more information-driven, our system of education seems stuck on the idea that "content is king," neglecting other skills that 21st century citizens sorely need. Golinkoff and Hirsh-Pasek introduce the "6 Cs": collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence. They also show parents ways they can nurture their children's development in each area.
