5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Boy Scouts and Work Groups
I have several book the ideas for team building activities, but none have had so many good ideas. Not all work well with every group, but there is something for everyone in this book (and its follow-on "More Team-Building Activities for Every Group."

4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of ideas
I found this an excellent book. A lot of physical activities so not suiable for all but an excellent variety

5-0 out of 5 stars What can I say I love this book!
This book gave me a lot of useful ideas.I modified the games to fit my needs but the ideas where there. I borrowed it from the library and had to buy a copy for myself.What a great investment! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars preschooler's busy book
This is a great book. I have a busy 5 year old and it can be a challange to keep her busy. She loves the activities, mom is cool again:)

5-0 out of 5 stars Organized, worthwhile activities
I love this book.Being a stay-at-home mom, this author knows how to stay, organized and have fun with her kids.I needed help to organize craft boxes, activity ideas, etc.This book does that.Of course, some of the things I naturally do with my daughter, like bake or color, I'm forgot about lots of other activities to do with young ones.It's a hands-on book.However, like the author says, it's only as good as you use it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just as wonderful as the Toddler Busy book
I ordered the two books together and they are highly recommended.Ms. Kuffner doesn't repeat (much) in the books so it's worth it to have both.My 3 year old and his 11 year old sister love the activities in this book as well as many adults who have played with us.

5-0 out of 5 stars this worked for my child
I am very impressed by this program.My son was 5 1/2 and half way through kindergarten last winter and didn't know a single sight word.He was already speech delayed and I knew that was going to cause enough problems in school.I didn't want him to be behind academically as well.I found this program and am so thankful I did.He was reading books by the end of kindergarten and his teachers couldn't believe his progress.I just sat through his IEP meeting at the beginning of first grade and he has no academic IEP goals (now if we could just get the speech and behavior worked out).My only regret is that I did not find this book sooner.I will certainly start my other children much, much sooner.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting methodology but...
...overall too ponderous and unwieldly for teaching an average child to read...perhaps more to the point it's quite tedious and would probably be difficult to use given a typical child's attention span...however, for remedial work in adults I suspect it would be quite useful.

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
Three months into kindergarten my son's teacher and I were concerned because he was having such a hard time learning the names and sounds of his letters.A friend recommended this book to me so we started it.He learned so much faster by just doing the sounds of the letters first.By the end of the school year his teacher was amazed at his progress.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Read For Parents
This is a good book for parents not just those with toddlers and preschoolers. It gives insight into the montessori method and really shows you the interelationship between how a child deveopls intellectually and physically. I wish that I had gotten it earlier because it has good insights into toddlerhood - tantrums and all. My son is 21/2 and we are hoping to send him to pre-school in September, so we wanted to get a guideline so to speak about what we should be looking for and the best kind of learning at his age. Also we were looking for new ways to engage him, so I'm anxious to try out the activities. He's in the 'I want to be independent stage' and after reading the book I have adopted some of its advice on how to help him acheive this. All in all I would say its a good buy, quite informative.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Montessori resource for the home
I was looking for a good way to teach my preschool son at home using some elements of the Montessori method.However, I wanted to go at my own pace and in a relaxed way.If you need a more regimented and structured Montessori method at home read Elizabeth Hainstock's books.Leslie Britton's book is well-written, concise and hits all the main points.I really like the games and activities designed for children from two to six.I am able to pick and choose and with home materials to teach my son at home.My son is two so he's only able to participate in a few exercises.Can't recommend it enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool for parents of pre-school age kids
Montessori school can be unbelieveably expensive (approx. 500 dollars per 8 week sessions, and that's just half days!), and your child has to be "approved" in most institutions. Based on the teaching of Maria Montessori, it is designed to help toddlers and young children learn in five simple steps: observation, participation, practice, "eureka" movement, and performance. This learning process can help youngsters be well ahead of the game by the time they go into Kindergarten. While a Montessori school can help give your kids interaction withkids of all ages, you can still apply this method of learning in the home, as Montessori pointed out: "Parents are still the child's first and most important teachers".Read more

...I could probably come up with most of the ideas in this book.It's O.K. and has some good suggestions for materials to purchase but I have barely consulted it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome book for any parent, grandparent, or baby sitter
We use this book on a daily basis. My kids love doing something new everyday and this book is great for ideas. We also leave it out for baby sitters... they like it too!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas!
I am enjoying this book a great deal.I have tried several ideas and projects and my two-year-old son loved them!I also appreciate that there are activities in the book that older kids would like, so I can continue to use this book for years to come. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very useful book
As a teacher I found that this book had many fun and functional activities.I do wish this book had more activities for older (teenage) students with moderate to severe disabilities; but, a great book overall.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book for Sensory Integration out there!!
I *LOVED* this book.It was such a quick read that I got through it in two days, *with* two kids underfoot, but there certainly was no lack in valuable content to read.This has transformed the way that I understand and work with my daughter, and she has had a diagnosis for sensory integration disorder for years!I reccommend this to *any* parent, even those without sensory kids....

5-0 out of 5 stars Best resource for activities I've found!
I found this book very helpful for use in my field as a social worker who works with children and adolescents, not just with sensory issues, but across a wide spectrum of issues.This book offers MANY activities targeting children of all ages and with diverse interests, and I have also found it helpful to recommend to parents as options for activities to entertain their kids with! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good if you need ideas
This is a good book if you're struggling with how to play with your infant.I found that a lot of the suggestions were things I was already doing instinctively, having been around children most of my life.It did give me a few new ideas.However, I also feel that there is so much pressure out there to "entertain" your baby or help them reach their "full potential" when really the most important thing is just to love them and care for them.Sometimes all of these structured activities just add more stress when your baby might benefit more if you just relax and do what comes naturally.Still, good book to get some ideas of age-appropriate play.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but sloppy.
The book is repetitive.Nonetheless I found the book helpful and I still use the soothing techniques suggested.I do like the fact that the book emphasized the need to console the baby BEFORE he/she is in a full lather...something my husband and I disagreed upon until we both read the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for any new parent
We love this book. This is an absolute must for any new parent. The activites are divided into age appropriate sections (0-3 mths, etc) that offer the right balance of activities and expert knowledge. On the days that you had no sleep the night before and you can not possibly think of an activity yourself, you can open the book right up and the big color pictures are self-explainatory. As my daughter grew, the book became a picture book that provided us with endless stories about the pictures. Also, great to leave out for babysitters and grandparents. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Joy Recharge
The first three chapters alone are well worth the price.Dive in with an open mind.I usual wince when authors are out to save the world (the last statement in Chapter 1 is "The healing of ourselves, of each other, of our children, and of society begins one bond at a time.") but I put that aside and really was moved by the view the author gives.
5-0 out of 5 stars "Mom can you get out that yellow book again...."
is something I hear just about every day.My six and three year old love - absolutely love - the finger plays and songs from this book. The negative, frightening themes from nursery rhymes are removed and replaced with loving positive words and images.
1-0 out of 5 stars Too Specific
I was disappointed in this book.It is geared more toward adoptive and foster care families rather than others who are looking for some fun ideas to share with their family.I only got one or two workable ideas out of this book.For people looking for simple fun things to do everyday and on special days, I would definitely suggest instead "The Book of New Family Traditions" by Meg Cox. That book has a lot wonderful ideas about celebrating milestones and theme nights and funny things to do and serious things too. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Reading Magic
This is one of the best books I have read. It not only provides a useful guide of how to practice reading aloud to children it shatters many old ideas about teaching children to read. As a senior teacher at my school I will certainly recommend this for every teacher on staff, both young and old.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful information for parents willing to develop their childen readership
In general the book provides some simple tips of how to help your children to learn reading by having fun and develop a taste for reading. It worked for me, and I would recommend it for parents that are eager to provide their children with a push for developing this important skill.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book by a Beloved Children's Author
As a Speech Language Pathologist and Children's Literacy Coach I can attest to the fact that reading to children is a critical element in literacy acquisition. Children must learn the flow of language and the variance and flexibility of words in order to appreciate literature and write well. Reading to children of ALL ages ( yes even middle and high school!) is critical for the development of advanced reading, writing and listening skills. What can be better than creativity and imagination being fostered during a warm, entertaining storytelling session.....with the stories coming from brilliant authors ( like Mem Fox)? I recommend this book to all my parents, my fellow teachers and to my friends. It makes a great book for new parents. It makes a great addition to any one's library who has an interest in children's literature, literacy or storytelling.Thank you Mem Fox for writing such a great book! ... Read more

I received this book from my friend when my daughter was first born and started reading to her early on.She is now 22 months and loves this book.Every night she wants me to read her a story from this book.She carries this book everywhere with her.She loves the illustrations and when we go out to dinner this book does the trick to entertain her while we wait.The book is now falling apart so I'll soon have to replace with a new one.I strongly recommend it.

This book is filled with so many wonderful ideas it's actually uplifting to read. And as you do, you get the feeling that no matter how busy your life is, there's a family ritual that's just right for you. If you want to discover simple, practical things you can do to enhance the texture of your relationships with your children, this is the book to buy. Meg Cox's creativity, vision, and committment to families ring through on every page.

5-0 out of 5 stars Breezy and fun yet deep and meaningful.
Meg Cox's latest book is a winner! Culling from interviews with families nationwide and from her own astute observations, Cox shows us how rituals can strengthen our family bonds, can help to ground us (especially helpful in such uncertain times as these have been) and can provide us with meaningful memories. Just as rituals add pizazz to daily life, Cox's book brings a fresh and vigorous perspective to the body of literature on the subject of tradition.Brimming with stories and tips, wit and wisdom as well as colorful illustrations, this book is tantamount to the Whole Earth Catalog of rituals.A creative way to teach good values. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Creating Memories with your Children
My daughter has always been interested in fairy houses since we first watched Kristen's Fairy House.They are delightful little creations that she would spend hours making in the back yard, or we would go on walks and find natural things for her to use in her designs.She is now 8, and still very much into creating unique homes for the fairies.I feel so lucky to see her whimiscal artistic side bloom.She is even creating seasonal fairy house centerpieces for us to decorate our home with.I will always treasure these times with her, and the magical memories that we are making.Sorry if I am long winded.Getting to the point, this book has GORGEOUS photographs of all kinds of fairy houses, in all seasons.It is an inspiration to behold.My daughter and I love to look at the pictures over and over.The authors brought up a really nice fundraiser that they started by having everyone they knew in their neighborhood make fairy houses.What an interesting and unusual idea!Next house tour to raise money for school, can be fairy houses!This book offers the person that would like to get started making houses, lots of ideas, or is a sweet read for the person that just wants to appreciate little bits of beauty.A nice addition to Kristen's Fairy House Video/DVD, and sweet memories for family times together.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ten minutes that could affect a lifetime!
This is an interesting and useful book.It provides a wide range of activities to use with children to help them learn about themselves and understanding others.Many of the activities offer ways to accommodate for older or younger audiences, and some are specific to ages.The range of topics addressed is rather inclusive, and the activities are designed to appeal to all types of learners (visual, auditory, kinesthetic).The activities offer a creative approach to each topic, and are nice springboards for deeper discussions.I am certain this book will be utilized both in my home and in my classroom!

5-0 out of 5 stars Asian compassion and wisdom in child development for the western head
I just purchased a copy of this book in English, because my wife has been translating the Thai version form me and we are both completely impressed by the wisdom contained in this book. My wife is Thai and her parents raised her with the same considerations and compassionate love that the book uses as the foundation for guiding parents how to raise their children. Currently, we are experimenting with the classic US style of education at the American School of Bangkok and will also try one of the Thai Waldorf school near our home and observe how the child responds the each on all levels of development. We, because of living in Bangkok, have the multiple education options incudintg British system, French system, Australian system, Multiple Intelligenc system, Montisori system, Christian schools etc..., and are very impressed with what we have seen in the Waldorf schools. Regardless of which education modality we choose the foundations in this book will guide our child development decisions.
4-0 out of 5 stars Mostly a good book....a good intro for new parents to Steiner
This is the first Steiner influenced book I have read and since I am a new parent and most of the info in here is aimed at small children, this was a good jumping off point for me.There were a few things in this book that bothered me, though, it may not be the author, it may be some of the ideas in this particular philosophy, I'm not sure yet.One was in her section on gifted children, she recommends holding back "precocious" children....that really bothered me.If a child wants to learn, by all means let them...that seems more like respecting the spirit of the child than trying to squelch their passions.The other thing was the constant reverance to which she spoke of Steiner.He is a smart guy and all, but, come on, he's not Jesus.That in particular leaves me with a cult like feeling about the whole movement.
5-0 out of 5 stars The awakening of common sense.
As a first time parent I bombarded myself with books about child raising and child develpment but this is the one to which I return to over and over again.It matters not that this book is aligned with Steiner principles, the information contained within its pages is timeless, and stirs a forgotten knowledge that can be found within all of us if we only take the time to look.In a consumer driven material world where we are bombarded with ten million ways in which to bring up our children, it is both refreshing and mellowing to find a book that gives power back to parents.Everything we need to know about raising happy, well adjusted, self-loving children is within us already.This book just helps to bring it into our conscious minds.If every new parent were given a copy of this book and put this forgotten knowledge into practice, what a wonderful childhood our next generation could enjoy. ...

After recess every day we would be given a page from the Anti Coloring book and allowed to draw to our hearts content for half an hour. It was one of my favorite times of the day.

5-0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs up, most definitely!!
As a parent and former early childhood educator, I am pleased to write this review. In a day and age when entertainment does not require much thought process from our young ones (i.e. video games, pointless television shows, computer software, etc.), it is very refreshing to stumble upon the Anti-Coloring Book. Our children are exposed to endless amounts of effort-free fun stuff; and ultimately, young minds become lazy, trained, and forgetful of the power of imagination. How can you say no to a product that fosters developmentally appropriate learning, and promotes self awareness, self confidence, self expression, and independent thinking?? Help your child to break free from the lines and boundaries that hold them back.Kudos to the creators... it's time to get real about our children's needs!

5-0 out of 5 stars I grew up with Anti-Coloring Books
I still remember some of the specific pages I created in my Anti-Coloring Books almost 20 years ago! I had 4 or 5 different books and loved them all. These books encourage creativity, empowering kids to draw and think "outside the lines." I look forward to giving these books to my nieces, nephews, and children in the near future and are thrilled to learn that they're still available. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Spooktacular finds and helpful hints
i found this book to be helpful for decorating and having the scavenger hunt which i hope is a hit at my party. the foods were okay, because i think when you're having an adult halloween party, you need to have less sugary foods and more grown-up foods so to speak. otherwise, it was fine. thank you

5-0 out of 5 stars 101 Spooktacular Party Ideas
I love Halloween and had looked FOREVER to find a book to help with some ideas in the celebration and this book is it!This book gives ideas and step by step how to's in playing games, making recipes and creating props. Straightforward, easy, non-crafty and fun.Age limits are put on the games so you know which ones to use, or not to use.I have bought so many Halloween how to books that just sit on the shelf.This one does not!I have dog eared and paper clipped this one into tatters! This IS the book to buy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Halloween Book for Kid's Halloween Party!
This year I purchased a number of books on Halloween in order to get more ideas for my annual Halloween party for children ages 2 to 8. This book is a gem, best of the batch. I was able to use at least 10 ideas from this book, including "Stick the Nose on the Pumpkin", "Bopping for Apples", "Halloween Hunt" "Witches Brew" punch, etc. These ideas are easy to use, and not time consuming, unlike the ones I found in other books... where the prime requirement seems to be having a lot of spare time to carry out their ideas. I will use this book over and over again in years to come! ... Read more
