This 640-page book is the most complete and organized, topic-rich
publication that I've ever seen. Being the child of a principal and
a kindergarten teacher, I've seen many books that claim to be "complete"
but this one tops them all. Preschool teachers, kindergarten
teachers, daycare providers and home educators alike will be floored by
the sheer number of activities and the ease of use. Activities are
broken down by topic and theme. The reproducible art is crisp and clear.
Children are sure to lose themselves in the poetry and fun. You'll find
that a rainy day doesn't have to be a dreary day in the classroom anymore!
Time-saving activities for any day of the week abound and nothing is
missing - find everything inside: finger-plays, cultural enrichment
activities, opportunities to cultivate imagination, language development,
motor skills development and critical thinking activities. I
strongly recommend this book to anyone who works with children ages 2 - 6.
