I've been in the childcare and education of young children field for almost 30 years. This is the first book I would recommend specifically for homeschooling preschoolers. I especially recommend this book because of the open-ended play and creativity the authors so perfectly honor with activities that are developmentally appropriate and will encourage children to think and to trust their own ideas. Well done! Five Stars without a second thought! ~ MaryAnn Kohl, art book author
