Purposeful Play with Your Preschooler: A Learning-Based Activity Book

Excerpt

This book is intended for adults involved with preschool children. If born now, these youngsters will enter the work force during the early part of the twenty-first century, 2010 to 2020. Would anyone be foolhardy enough to predict the skills that will be necessary for gainful employment during this time or even a future time—a time whose dates look even stranger to us? We can no longer teach children rote solutions to routine problems since we cannot even venture to guess what the problems will be 20, 30, or 40 years from now. But one skill is absolutely certain: each child must develop his or her ability to think to the optimum of his or her potential .

How can caring adults foster this development? Certainly, it would help us to understand the stages of child development so that the time spent with our children is enjoyable, both for the adults who see the child's face light up as he gains new knowledge and the youngster who views the activities as interesting rather than frustrating experiences.

Someone said that time is money and, like money, time is something none of us has enough of. The activities suggested in this book will help you make the most of the time you spend with your child. Don't waste the precious early stages of your child's development drilling the youngster in unnecessary or incorrect skills. Don't waste those minutes in tasks inappropriate to the age and ability of your child. This book will show you how to make these times happy and productive.
