Format: Paperback
I was excited to order this book, but found myself very disappointed after opening it. I skimmed through it maybe twice and have had no desire to look at it since. The format of the book is poor (in my opinion), most of the activities are corny and anything but creative, and everything about the book seems outdated. There is no color, pictures, or examples on any of the pages. The majority of the activities are generic and lacking in creativity. I have not used one activity from the book yet. I still can't figure out how they managed to fill so many pages with such bland theme activities.

I really do find this book helpful but was sadly disappointed to find that it didn't have enough activities for 2 yr olds.. If you are teaching children 3 or older I think you will love it.. I have recommended it to my friend who teachs preschool.. But if you are a toddler teacher I would recommend to search for something that has mostly toddler activities..

Love this book. It is full of great activities, very well organized which makes it easy to find things by theme or age. I bought this book for myself but now after lending it to my friends at work I made it available to everyone as a great learning resource. Five stars to this one ;)

Lots of great activities to encourage learning skills for toddlers. Broken into helpful chapters. I am a speech pathologist and use many of these in my sessions.

Used this every single day when I taught preschool. I love how the activities are sorted, activities are very age appropriate and great for a teacher/parent on a budget!
