"I didn't actually count them, but there are LOTS of easy, fun activities for young children (or the young at heart) that should chase away any hint of boredom, or answer the question 'What can I do now?" - Laverne Nelson, Research Associate University of Arkansas

"Several new teachers in our school have asked to borrow this book to begin the year and I will share it with pleasure." - Anne Waldruff

Children's Literature
Full of fun and easy activities for young children, this book will delight children and their caregivers. Each activity is explained simply with the materials necessary listed in bold on the side. Adaptations for older children are included in some activities, as well as extensions if children enjoy the first part of the activity. The authors include personal notes about what their own children enjoy, how to turn an activity project into a gift, and inspirational quotes throughout the book. Illustrations and diagrams are provided where necessary, as well as room on each page to jot down ideas that the reader may want to remember in the future. This book will inspire you to experience the joy that comes from letting children explore and take charge of their own learning. 2000, Gryphon House, $12.95. Ages 3 to 7. Reviewer: Lisa Hillstrom
