There are several different project's in this book, would like to know that by doing this review lots of people both men an women go on amazon and get this book, it doesn't cost a arm an leg to get but you could really find so many different project to do with either your kids at home or if you are a teacher in a school.
If you read this but have no use for your own self but know others that could get a lot of use out of it please pass on the information an also let the author know that the book has a lot of good information an that you will let others know and even will take time to make a short review on it.
As someone who "disappears" into books when I am sad, stressed, or overwhelmed, I know how helpful it is to read about others feeling the same way or even just being able to "escape" into someone else's story. Ms Kirkfield has given us an amazing tool to use by allowing us to pick and choose books and activities based on a child's mood.
I highly recommend this gem. The reading list is filled with wonderful titles, and it's a great way to make memories with the little ones in your life. Considering that children are now beginning their summer vacation from school, it's the perfect time to have something like this on hand, even just for those days when the children claim "there is nothing to do," and they're "bored!"
