I am a grandmother with preschoolers and one in kindergarten. This is a great option for creative play instead of tv or videos. They love to have special things to do at Grandma's and I love that they are learning while they play. The book is easy to read and lets you "get creative" yourself with interactions with the kids. In a time when families are so busy, I love the fact that I can make a real difference in my grandchildrens lives, by stimulating their brains instead of passive entertainment methods. And I get to have fun with them while I do it! Get the book- it is fabulous.

This is a wonderfully written, easy to use book. It has a great variety of easy to implement, fun, hands-on activities to do with your children. Many of the activities are quick to set up, using common household items. I have two preschoolers who have enjoyed several of the activities listed in the book. They view this time as play time without realizing that they are learning so much. I also love that this book includes pictures of several of the activities.

Love this book! I found out about it on the chasing cheerios blog and really am so happy I purchased it! It has lots of practical learning activities and tells you about resources to help teach your child. It is also budget friendly and many of the activities are with materials you already have in your home. I'm recommending this to moms I know that desire to do more learning activities with their little ones that are not in school yet!

I LOVE this book. It is full of low-cost Montessori activities you can do at home with kids aged 2-6. The activities are not complex, not expensive, and most of them use materials you'd have around the house or can easily get at the craft store. I love the way the author explains in simple terms how to do the activities and the objective. I also like the reminders that you 'let the material do the teaching.' That really is the whole point of Montessori, just let the child play with the activity and learn from it while you're there to support. I researched SO many books when I decided to do some Montessori at home, and it is great to find a book that is simple, to the point, and so helpful. Highly recommend if you are wanting to do Montessori at home with children starting around age 2.

Several years ago when I began homeschooling, I wish I would have had this wonderful book. Now many years into it, I am confident in teaching my 3 children, but John Bowman's book has shed new light for me. I think any parent interested in providing their child with early learning opportunities at home NEEDS this book! It is an easy read and filled with valuable information!

Truly excellent resource to help parents understand how a preschooler learns by discovery and exploration. A practical, easy-to-follow handbook for designing and implementing activities at home to encourage independence and early learning. Wonderful, relevant information and illustrations, web references, and recommended items help parents get started in designing their own prepared environment for their preschooler. Very well-done, step-by-step guide!
