In the USA we generally refer to a child as being a "toddler" between the ages of 18 months and 3 years of age. However, my 5-year-old "preschooler" enjoys many of the activities in this book as well as his almost 2-year-old sister. I have learned that the best "gift" a parent can give a child is his/her undivided attention for a period of time. I have personally found that by spending one-on-one time with each of my children, even if only for 5-10 minutes one or two times a day, there is a positive change in the daily demeanor and degree of cooperation I get. They look forward to it. It's not that I can't think of things to do with my children, but on one of those really bad days (I'm sure you know what I mean), it's a big help to get some creative simple ideas to choose from at a glance. Also, this book comes in handy when a play-date becomes boring or unfriendly. When I am able to redirect the unhappy kids to the kitchen table for a "mommy supervised activity" from this book, the enthusiastic smiles almost always instantly return. When my daughter was born, and big brother's jealousy was on the rise, I used many ideas in this book for the much appreciated "mommy/big brother time" and "daddy/son time" without baby sister. I learned about the importance of one-on-one time with my children in "The Pocket Parent," my compassionate A-Z trouble-shooting guide that has saved my sanity many times. These two books have brought more peace to our family, more cooperation from our children, and more ways for us to enjoy one another. Also recommended:

Trish Kuffner's, The Toddler's Busy Book was exactly what I was looking for. She breaks the book up into activities for indoors, outdoors, etc. The ideas are very easy to follow, the supplies are fairly simple. Many items we had laying around the house. As a stay at home mom, I was getting bored with just playdough and crayons. This book is easy to flip through and find a new, short activity to do. There is not much prep work needed for each activity. As a former teacher, I found the activities to be developmentally appropriate for 1 1/2 -3 year olds.

I have seen many activity books but this one offers nothing new or unique. Nothing I couldn't think of myself.

I used this book for an internship I was doing in a Toddler room. It's size made it easy to have handy for reference. There are many good activities to try, and the ones I used worked great.I highly recommend this book for anyone who as daily interactions with Toddlers, whether in groups or individually.
