    I had this book once and from what I remember, it had a lot of good activities for young kids. It also had a great clay recipe in it. It's out of print now, but Amazon may be able to find it through a used-book search.

    We used this book plenty when our children were young and have passed it on to the grandchildren (bought more used copies). One daughter used it for ideas as a teen working in an after-school program. It's great for homeschoolers - no need for "fancy," expensive preschools that take children away from their best caregiver -- MOM! You'll use it again and again for ideas on through the primary years. It will help jump start your thinking for other ideas not listed too.

    This book was new and marvelous when my children were young and it's just as valuable today. I gave my copy to my first son and his wife and have just bought two more copies, one for my second son and his wife, and one for me! An example: clay play for 2 1/2 year olds. I visited my granddaughter today and took along a fresh batch of pink "play dough." Other times her mother, being new and anxious, put too many "things" and shapes in front of her, and showed her how she could make this and that. The charm didn't last very long. This book says that often a child just wants to poke and pull and pound it and not make any "thing." Today her mother was busy, and I just sat while she added piece after piece to a growing mound, pounding or flattening everything together. Occasionally I'd pull off a chunk and hand it to her, which she added to her pile. She came back to the table five times during the day, to start over and slowly make the same big glob every time. Her absorption and satisfaction were beautiful to watch. This book helps mothers learn that the simpler, the better, and that money doesn't always buy the best playthings.

    It wasn't the book I remembered from childhood, but it is a great book and it was delivered quickly and in good shape.

    This book gives suggestions for entertaining children using everyday items & events. I found it helpful when raising my son (early 1980's) and like to give it as a gift to new moms who think outside the box.

    I have used this book as reference for 53 years. Happy to see it is still in print.

    This book was a great help when my children were young. Many ideas, and simple activities which they enjoyed, and helped keepmy sanity when I ran out of ideas. We did most of the suggestions, from making play dough, to items to play with in the sink or tub.I give it five stars, and will buy a copy for my son to use with his son. My copy is damaged from frequent use - and the dog chewed the cover.
