Product Description

Product Description

Do you often wish you had more ideas on how to keep your child stimulated at home? Do you find yourself signing up for expensive toddler programs since they give you the confidence that you have provided all that your toddler needs for his developmental growth? Do you wish that your toddler could be more fully engaged in his play so that you have time to do the laundry? Have you purchased activity books to give you more ideas on how to entertain your toddler to discover that they are more appropriate for groups of toddlers at a daycare or for a specialized program?

If you said yes to any of these questions, this book is for you!

Busy Toddler, Happy Mom has been divided into specific chapters that work on specific skills: small motor skills, gross motor skills, arts and crafts, sensory abilities, books and language development. As these activities are introduced, you are also increasing your toddler's math and reading readiness, her vocabulary, her understanding of language, and her understanding of her world.

So here is your chance to use a toddler activity book geared toward you, the parent or grandparent, who wants to engage her toddler in one-on-one learning experiences, while encouraging your toddler’s ability to play independently.

5.0 out of 5 stars INSANE value!!! 5 Mar 2013
By A. Kwan - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for books with had ideas about activities to do with some students at school. I stumbled across this, looked at the price and thought, why not??

I am glad I bought it, it has no pictures but it's CHOCK FULL of ideas. The author has 5 different sections in the book:

1. Small Motor - 41 different activities.
2. Gross Motor - 49 different activities.
3. Arts and Crafts - 52 activities.
4. Sensory - 40 activities.
5. Books - 48 suggestions AND activities to go with the book - in my 8 years of working with preschool and kindergarten children, I've looked through a lot of teacher resources. I am fairly sure this is the first time I have seen someone offer this.
6. Language - 52 activities.

Unless my math is off, that is 281 activities that you can do with your child/children. Let me be blunt, you are getting this women's MANY years of experience for .99 cents!!! What can you get for that these days?!!

Give this some serious thought the next time you are looking for a book of things to do with your child, you will not be disappointed.

As a stay-at-home mom of a nonstop 21-month old, I needed a lot of ideas and options to keep him busy and me sane! He is very active and his curiosity often gets him into trouble. This book gives me many, many ideas to safely distract him, keep him busy, and build skills! You can't beat it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book to start with 14 Nov 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Downloaded the book to gain ideas for my 1.3year toddler. Didn't give 5 stars, because I'd appreciate if instead of going through whole book for finding suitable activities, there'd been tips of age groups with every activity or section. But after quickly reviewing the book I did find some interesting ideas for my toddler. Possibly I'll have to go through it again when she grows older too.
