Hi, this is Patrice Badami, with Acorn to tree children’s book review. And I wanted to show you these two books they’re going together. One of them is called the toddler’s busy book by Trish Kuffner. And the other one is the preschoolers busy book by Trish Kovner. I wanted to show them to you together because I love them so much. These two books, I got them, and I keep them on my on my counter. They’re so small with a small little off, but they pack a punch. There’s so many things in here, they’re wonderful. Let me tell you some of the things that are in these books. They have so many recipes for different types of bubbles and different activities with bubbles. They have this fingerplays in here songs in here. There’s there’s different nutritional snack ideas in here. There’s so many different fine motor skill activities. And I really like it because it’s old school. I mean, they’re very, very simple little activities, but they’re really great ideas that you would think to yourself, Well, why am I thinking that? Well, she already did for you. What a real find these books are 365 fun, creative screen free learning games and activities to stimulate your toddler every day of the year. That’s this form here. And this one is the preschooler, and it’s a 360 by fun, creative screen free learning, games and activities to stimulate your three to six year old every day of the year. Honestly, you can flip through this book and find something at all times you can flip through it right now. And you can find anything at all I’m going to do it, I’m going to flip through, I’m going to flip through and I’m going to find, okay, it’s called Tube ball. And you take a large cardboard mailing tube or gift prep to but tennis full string and empty basket and you literally just give it to the child so that they can learn about where the ball goes. There’s so many different activities like that. There’s ones with marbles and bowls. There’s different grocery store games and rock play, just really packed with so many fun and easy activities. And definitely, absolutely I can guarantee you, most of these things you will definitely have in your kitchen, or in your home. Because there’s a lot of ideas with recycled materials as well in here. So these are just wonderful. I’ll share with you one just basic idea that I thought was it was really fundamental in helping my child my child learn words. So you can use contact paper or I happen to laminate, you just take everyday objects. Unknown Speaker 2:41 Or maybe not a motorcycle, but there’s fire engines or whatever spoons, you can take your own photos, print them, or you can find different pictures from magazines who laminate them. And I’m going to tell you how I how I play with I played with my daughter, I would get a box just simply a box, I would have returned her back. And then she randomly pick one. And then she seems she knew what the word was. And it was fun. It wasn’t like I was testing her. So we made it seem more like a game. And as she if I happen to notice it was a word she didn’t know I would just gently kind of put put it aside without hurt, you know, feeling bad about it or anything. And then we would just come back to it. But this is just really great. And you would be surprised how proud they are when they’re able to identify the picture. So this is one like very simple idea. There’s also something else that she had suggested in the book that I did, but I actually don’t know where it is right now. I took shapes. And I took I cut out on construction paper, the different shapes. And then I put them with contact paper I put on them. And I had my daughter sort them by color and shape. And that’s something I just put a little ziploc bag. So we had it. And it was handy to just take wherever I go. But this is just I think these books are so helpful. And you know what, you can flip through the book, have a little morning coffee, and you can easily set up two or three or even four little things and just have the lined up on the counter. That’s what I did. When my daughter was really young. I literally, I went through the book at night, I put posters, and then I lined up the activities while she was having breakfast so that we went from one thing to the next. So I really think you should take a look for these two books. They’re wonderful. They’re timeless. They’re classic. I just love them tremendously. And again, I’m going to tell you the titles to make sure you remember the toddler is busy book by Trish Custer and the preschoolers busy book by Trish Costner. Two glorious books that I really adore.
