Helping Your Preschool Child, with Activities for Children from Infancy through Age 5. Revised
Lehr, Fran; Osborn, Jean
US Department of Education
Scientists who study how the brain works have shown that children learn earlier--and learn more--than we once thought possible. From birth through age 5, children are developing the language, thinking, physical, emotional and social skills that they will need for the rest of their lives. This booklet is for families and caregivers who want to help their preschool children to learn and to develop the skills necessary for success in school--and in life. The booklet begins with information that will help parents prepare children to learn and to get ready for school. The major portion of the booklet contains simple activities that can be used with children. In addition, the booklet provides suggestions for how to monitor children's TV viewing and to choose good TV programs and videos and how to choose suitable child care. It also provides a checklist to guide parents as they prepare their children to enter kindergarten. [This publication was originally written by Nancy Paulu.
