Review:

“The book is a wonderful brainstorm of activities. The author provides a list and explanation for each activity, making this an extremely useful and user-friendly resource for early childhood professionals." (Michelle Barnea, Early Childhood Consultant 2008-10-10)

“This text will quickly become a favorite for busy teachers wanting to provide engaging learning activities in their classrooms.” (Roxie Ahlbrecht, Second-Grade Teacher 2008-10-10)

“The wealth of suggestions and materials that are readily available to teachers make this a worthwhile resource for educators, who can pick and choose the activities to incorporate into their curriculum.” (Susan Schipper, First-Grade Teacher 2008-10-10)

“There cannot be enough resources for teachers who desire to encourage play-based, hands-on learning―and they all should! Gwen Kaltman’s book is practical and puts common household materials in the service of learning.” (James Clay, Director 2008-10-10)

"An excellent supplement to any curriculum and to an early childhood teacher’s bag of tricks. The activities are bound to engage young children’s curiosity as they explore everyday objects with a new perspective.” (Judy Zimmerman, Executive Director 2008-10-17)
