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 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!
