    This book helps parents not have to worry about doing the right

    This book helps parents not have to worry about doing the right thing or wonder what they should be doing. It like having another mom and a teacher guiding you. So helpful.

    This book seriously saved my sanity. I have read lots of books

    This book seriously saved my sanity. I have read lots of books on parenting but this is the only one that gave me specific activities to do with my kids that weren't complicated and didn't need a lot of expensive supplies. I'm a stay at home Mom for the time being and I was racking my brain to come up with fun, creative things to do with the kids that would keep them busy and help them learn. I love it that a Mom and a teacher worked together to write this book. The projects really work and keep the kids interested. I highly recommend it especially for Moms with "busy" kids!
