The best time for a child to learn is during the early childhood years. Learning changes the structure of the brain and forms brain connections when a new skill is learned. In relation to this, author Clementine T. Fordham published through Xlibris Early Childhood Scientific Brain Connections, a manual that will help cultivate bright young minds.
In Early Childhood Scientific Brain Connections, Fordham emphasizes the importance of early childhood science interventions, in order for students to acquire scientific knowledge in the scientific world. The entire manual focuses on all pre-school children who can participate and be able to experiment with supervision. This book will help students develop additional facts, questions, and discuss their understanding. It is arranged into scientific subject areas with each lesson presenting the subject area, focus point, word pronunciation and meanings, materials needed, first-hand experiences, and the instructional lesson. Discussions and oral quizzes can be used as diagnostic practice.
As students enjoy discovering science facts for themselves, Early Childhood Scientific Brain Connections gives them free reign (under supervision) as they ask questions and have fun with their discoveries. The earlier scientific minds are developed, the higher the probability for success—such as higher scores in the State Comprehension Science Assessment Scores.

About the Author
Clementine Thomas Fordham was born in 1937 in Alachua, Florida. She attended Kentucky State College in Frankfort, Kentucky and earned her degree in Elementary Education. Her first job was at Manatee County School System where she worked for three years. After that dramatic experience of childbirth, she got her second job in the Sarasota County School System where she stayed for twenty-seven years. Throughout the author’s career, there was a sincere desire to learn more. Due to her continuous training, she earned her Master’s Degree in Science at Nova University. She enrolled in service classes at Florida Atlantic University and the University of South Florida. Fordham’s willingness to go above and beyond is to ensure that the developmental steps of the whole child would be enhanced. The author is presently retired but she is convinced that her three children and ten grandchildren realizes how important it is for young children to get the earliest scientific knowledge. She further believes what experts have found to be true—that the human brain grows as a result of learning and experiences.
