LOVE this book! As a grandma I'm always looking for fun things to do with my 2 young grandchildren, ESPECIALLY on rainy days. This book is a gold mine of fun hands on activities. It's amazing to me that so many of the 'recipes' are with ingredients I already have in stock in my pantry. I love it and the kids love it, thanks Ms. Citro for writing this book!

Love this book!!  Asia has thought of everything for a busy parent - from the visual icons for allergies, to alternative ideas for extended play, to tips for trouble shooting - it's simply brilliant.

This book is simply amazing!  My kids are 6 and 9, and can be entertained for hours with the ideas it provides. I love that the recipes are easy, safe, and made from simple ingredients. I wish I had this book years ago. A terrific resource for parents, babysitters, grandparents, and teachers.
