5.0 out of 5 stars Great handbook for parents and grandparents. 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase
A very readable book about the importance of play in child development. Refreshingly lacking in jargon, this is a book which will prove extremely useful to all who are involved in the rearing of under fives. Lots of ideas for busy parents and grandparents. Excellent value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical guide 6 Jan 2014
By spent
As a teacher I recommend the book, Learning Through Play by Kate Coulson, because it is easy to read and simple to put into practice. It is an essential guide for parents and carers of little ones, and is a good start on the ladder of education.

I enjoyed this book. I bought it as a Grandfather looking for ideas. I found it easy to read and full of ideas. The best and most interesting part was about how, by just changing what you say, you can help your child develop in a more positive way. Yes, good buy.

I bought this book for new ideas about what to do with my children on rainy days. I was pleased when I found that it also shows me how each activity contributes to my child's development. It also has a chapter on what to expect when my child starts school and what I should make sure that he can do - like count to ten, use a knife and fork etc.
Great buy.
