From the Author
Preschool Friends A-ZAround The World (Together In Peace And Harmony, Book 1) was written for children, ages 2-5. However we all know that their is a huge discrepancy between the level of development between a two year old and a child of five.Therefore I'm offering a few suggestions on how to utilize this book depending on where your youngster falls on the growth scale.
For ages 2-3:
1.Spend time looking at each illustration identifying the main character by name.
2.Identify the letter of the alphabet and link it to the first letter of the character.'s name.
3.Discuss what activities are taking place. This will help your child to form a bond with the main character.
4.Read the rhymes as many times as your child wants to hear them.
For ages 4-5:
1.Repeat all of the points listed for ages 2-3 depending on your child's needs.
2.Direct attention to the ethnicity of the main character and discuss country of origin.
3.Perhaps use a globe or map to locate the country and where it is with respect to the rest of the world.
4.Explain the meaning of the main character's name.
5.Focus on the activity being performed and ask if he or she has ever done the same thing in his or her preschool experience.
6.Allow your child to talk about any differences he or she may notice. Encourage questions and observations.
7.Read the rhymes or allow you child to read them independently.
Since children ages 2-5 are concrete learners, paperback books are recommended.
About the Author
During her professional career, Flo Barnett was a preschool administrator and daycare provider. She also taught kindergarten and elementary school for many years. Now retired, Flo writes hilarious tales for, and sometimes based on, the real-life antics of her seven energetic grandchildren whom she loving refers to as "Grammy's Gang."
More recently Ms. Barnett published the first book, 'Preschool Friends A-Z Around The World' in her new series,Together In Peace And Harmony, for ages 2-5, introducing young children to cultural and racial diversity. It is her belief that when little ones are exposed to difference in a positive setting, they will naturally embrace rather than fear it.
Flo has also published nostalgic novellas geared for ages 9-99. Serious topics such as abuse, bullying and loss of a loved one are explored in a sensitive manner in order to empower her readers to either face adversity with courage and conviction, or heal memories of the past.
Flo lives near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her hubby, Barry, and her dog, Shadow.
