Slow and Steady, Get Me Ready. A Parents' Handbook for Children from Birth to Age 5.
Oberlander, June R.
This handbook, which was written by a retired kindergarten teacher with over 25 years of experience, is intended to bridge the gap between home and school. It describes 260 learning activities, each of which is based on a different concept. Most activities require materials usually found in the home. An activity is provided for each week of the child's life from birth through the fourth year. Activity guides are written in language that is easy to understand and include statements of the ways in which the activity promotes growth in different areas of development. The preface offers suggestions for implementing the activities. (RH)
