Reviews - What do customers think about Preschooler's Busy Book: 365 Creative Games & Activities To Occupy 3-6 Year Olds?
Alright.... May 30, 2008
I just got this book and it has some cute, easy games and activities. I don't know that I would call them creative. Some are things like "let's go pick up the neighborhood trash" Uh.... no thanks. My neighbors can pick up their own trash and they can clean up their own yards.
Other than a few "misses" it really is full of ideas and fun.
great ideas Apr 24, 2008
This book is well written and has great ideas, hundreds of them. Some are real simple and there aren't any pictures, I find myself reading it thinking "why hadn't I though of this before?" some activites are just a few minutes each. I had checked it out at the library before purchasing. Would reccommed this book.
Offers great ideas Feb 24, 2008
I bought this book to survive our long winer season we are having here in Boston. This book offers a lot of good tips to keep our toddlers and preschoolers busy.
THERE IS HOPE!!! Dec 10, 2007
I'm only 100 pages into The Preschooler's Busy Book, but after the first few pages I knew there was hope for me and my daughter facing the winter months indoors together. I took the author's advice and brought along a "Busy Bag" on a shopping trip we took with my mom and grandmother. I packed books, markers, some bracelets, and magnets that she could play with on a small cake pan while I pushed her in a stroller. It was truly a life-saver. She is 3 and a half, so we are just entering this new stage of boredom and inquisitiveness, so I cannot wait to try some of the great ideas I've found in the book. I also purchased the Arts & Crafts Busy Book, because she loves craft projects, but my imagination is limited. The quotes at the beginning of each chapter are really great too and make you think about the joy of motherhood. The size of the book is nice and compact, not too big to bring along somewhere to read. It's also convenient that you don't have to spend a lot of money on these activities. Most items can be found around the house. The only reason I gave it four stars is because I haven't completely finished reading the book yet, but I anticipate it to be a five-star review overall.
LOVE this book!! Nov 25, 2007
I bought the toddler's busy book when my son was two years old and we loved it so much that I decided to purchase this one a year later. We've done most of the activities in this book and my now four year old still loves it. He will go and grab the busy book from the shelf and ask if we can find him something to do! Must have for all moms of preschoolers!
