Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Gathered together are more than six hundred activities, organized by month and presented in an easy-to-use format. Teachers will find ample coverage of traditional curriculum topics in math, science, art, music and movement, and early language development. Additional tie-ins for holidays, field trips, and cooking activities are included. These activities were developed by teachers and selected by teachers to provide developmentally appropriate, high-interest, low-maintenance options for each of the twelve months of the year and a thirteenth month of "anytime" activities. Activities are directed at individual work, group work, quiet work and those involving singing, clapping, and movement. Each activity lists materials required and detailed instructions with line drawings. Additional, similar activities are suggested and a list of related materials and/or resources is included for each activity. The book concludes with a "List of Holidays, Celebrations and Special Days" organized by month, an index of curriculum areas by month, an index of children's books alphabetized by title and an index of the book's activities. This volume is an extensive and comprehensive guide to activities for young children that has been thoroughly reviewed and tested. It is well-organized and easy to use, and would be a useful addition to any pre-elementary school classroom or childcare center.
