Is that a problem? No. Simply pick and choose to suit your child's interests and abilities.
Don't stress if the author seems to think that a not quite 2 year old should be able to button, snap, and zip and yours can't.
(1) The author taught kindergarten, not nursery school. She doesn't have tons of experience with thousands of infants and preschoolers. Who does, really?
(2) Every child IS different, learning things as they WANT to, not as they are forced to by some odd adult schedule. Many 5-year-olds still mix up colors. It's normal. It's also normal for a 2 year old to know them all.
(3) You can always skip activities that seem beyond your child, move ahead to ones that she is ready for, and come back to any of them at any time for any reason.
Are the activities and games basic, needing little money or prep? Yep. But as a tired, overwhelmed mom I can tell you that I couldn't think of most of them. It's nice to have a handy guide of simple, fun things to do with my child. Hurray for other moms who aren't as tired or are more creative than me. And hurray for me for having this book.
Is it too late to use this book if your child is no longer an infant? Nope! I bought this book when my daughter was 2 and kept forgetting to pull it out. She is nearly 4 now and I just went through the book again, flagging fun things to do with her. I've even flagged a couple of things out of the 1-year-old chapter.Read more ›
I was even given the book by Gymboree on activities ... let me tell you, that book was dumb! My daughter never wanted to do those things and it took a lot out of you to set up the projects. This is a book I will put on my list of "perfect gift for a shower" along with the Einstein videos and a bouncy seat. Talk about a life saver.
