Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to give my nanny a resource for taking care of my 15-month-old. It is a bit more suited for a daycare than a nanny, as it has lesson plans for large groups of children. Although, there are some interesting suggestions and I like the way the book is organized. Not a waste of money or time, but I wouldn't recommend this as the only toddler activity book to purchase. This one might make a good extra book. I would recommend The Encyclopedia of Infant And Toddler Activities: For Children Birth to 3 as a starter book.

An incredibly useful resource that has provided me with so many stimulating ideas for the toddlers at my daycare. It has also saved me a lot of time in trying to think of age-appropriate craft activities which are also theme based, interesting and fun.

Well worth purchasing.

Format: Paperback
This book is big for a reason! It presents fun and interesting activities on a myriad of simple subjects (individual body parts, individual colours, Holidays) that little ones would like to learn more about. Each of these subjects has a "chapter" devoted to it. For instance, the chapter on "Loud" suggests songs, stories, activities (physical and craft projects) that are related to the action "Loud" exclusively. Within these chapters, the activities I stated above are broken down by language enrichment, cognitive development, social-emotional development, and physical development. Overall, it aims to be a "well rounded" educational guide. This book is meant to work best in a daycare/preschool/structured homeschool setting because it allows you to set up a structured "school plan," but it could be a handy reference to a parent if their child takes a particular interest in a certain subject. I really like the way this book is presented. It's very easy to follow, and has so many great, simple ideas. I would recommend you check it out at the library before you consider buying if you are a parent just looking for fun ideas for your own kids (this could be really great for you if you don't mind planning ahead, ala a school setting) but I would recommend daycares/pre-schools to buy this book because it seems really fun and easy to use! This book also says it's meant for toddlers and twos, but I think these activities would be fun for small children from toddlers through five. I mean, what little child doesn't love to sing songs and play games? It's new material for the little ones, but a fun review for the bigger kids.

I found this book very useful for my work with toddlers, twos, threes and fours. Why? Because all activities can be adapted to older children. Creative and low-cost activities are always welcome in a Learning Center!

I homeschool my older child and was struggling to find something that would allow my 2yr old to "do" school too. This is absolutely perfect for lesson plans and ideas for kids under 4! Would be great for daycares or preschools but AWESOME for the homeschool Mom trying to find a way to keep her little ones busy and engaged!! Teaches simple concepts like, - eyes, nose, ears, clouds, sun, animals, etc! Offers sample craft projects, sing-alongs, fingerplays and rhymes.

I work with early and late one year olds and this book has been soooooooooooo useful from the songs to the felt board patterns. I have it in the classroom and I take it home with me.
