Reviews - What do customers think about Games to Play with Toddlers, Revised?
Disappointing Nov 9, 2007
I was diappointed in this book. I expected a whole bunch of ideas for simple games. What I got was a book which spells out what we already do with our daughter. The "games" consist of things as obvious as pointing to a toy and naming it then having your child point to their toys as you name them. I mean, who doesn't know to ask thier child "Where's your kitty toy?" or doing this little piggy with them. Those are not "games" so much as simply interacting with your child. And I certianly don't need a book to tell me to do that!
satisfied Feb 23, 2007
I am a stay at home mom and I try to have activity books on hand to be helpful to me, even if it reminds me or gets my creativity flowing again. If you are an educator, I have read Pam Schiller books and I feel they are geared in format towards educators. If you want activities to plan for this book and judy herr books are layed out in a more organized manner.
Even more creativity than the first book Aug 9, 2001
This book includes many more exciting activities to play with your toddler. While my daughter does a lot of exciting activities at day care, it gives me an opportunity to have some creative time with her in the evenings and weekends. This book is wonderful in giving her uncreative mother a head start in coming up with ideas for her to do.
This is really for babies, not toddlers May 31, 2001
The first thing that should be noted about this book is that is really intended for babies, not toddlers. The games are for children from 12 to 24 months. I bought it for a 2 1/2 yr. old and he's pretty far beyond many of the suggested games. For a younger kid, it would be pretty good. All the games feature stuff that's laying around the house and they are very short games, which is great for kids with an attention span of about 2 seconds! I would recommend this book for anyone with a baby, but be forewarned there's a lot of gushy stuff in there like "sit back and watch your little cherub have fun!"
Requires few "accessories" - good to keep on hand May 17, 2000
This book mainly contains activities and games that don't require a lot of props. Or if a game requires a prop, the materials are usually already in the house. We loved the balance beam game and made our own out of a 2x4 laid across two books. Our toddler learned balance and increased her confidence.
I like the book categories - can easily find a "type" of game. I also like that the book is additionally sorted by age.
This definitely is not an arts and crafts book; if you're looking for a variety of artsy things to do with your child, this is not the book to buy.
But, I have plenty of those books and was happy to find a book that my husband could thumb through and pick an activity without having to make a shopping trip.
Also nice to leave out for babysitters or visiting relatives, to help them interact with the baby - and to help the baby get used to them.
