This product would be useful to both new teachers and old pros. Personally it could help teachers keep their sanity during a busy day with preschoolers and professionally it provides a wealth of activities to help keep children focused and move smoothly from one learning situation to another.
Teachers of young children would benefit from this product. There are many useful tips and activities in this book. This book would also assist therapists, social workers, aides (lunch aides, classroom aides) or anyone who is at some point in charge of even a small group of children. This includes librarians, parents, Girl Scout and Boy Scout leaders, and many others. Anyone who needs to get children from point A to point B would find this book very helpful.
