Overview

We know from first-hand experience that moms sometimes struggle raising preschoolers and may have very little free time. Don't panic. You aren't the only mom who wonders:

* Why do my kids just want to watch TV all the time?
* Why does it make me so crazy some days to be home with my kids?
* Are there things I should be doing to prepare my child for school?

In this unique book, a mom and a teacher team up to show moms how to keep little ones busy and well-behaved. How is this accomplished? With brain-stimulating developmentally-appropriate activities that will fascinate your child for hours. When children are challenged, they behave better, their confidence is boosted, and they use their imaginations to play more independently. Why is this good for you? You will actually find yourself with more free time while helping your child learn through playful activities.

We know that not every mom is a crafting genius, so we will show you what to buy and how to be organized, so you can play an active role in developing your child’s intelligence. This isn’t about drilling your child with flashcards. This is about using inexpensive materials from around your house to inspire your child’s natural curiosity and develop important motor and sensory skills through guided, extended and independent play. Our goal to save your sanity, one project at a time.

Katie Norris, a mother of two preschoolers, and Susan Case, a certified teacher with an M.S. in Family and Child Development, wrote this book to show moms how to have an active role in developing their child’s intelligence through playful activities, thereby saving their sanity, one project at a time.

    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!
