Using this book with children will not only help build their self-esteem, it will also turn them into life-long readers and lovers of books! I wish SHOW ME HOW! had existed when my own children were young.
I loved this book. I am not very creative when it comes to activities with my kids, so this is the book for me. I have loved going to the library with my boys and picking out the books and then doing the craft and cooking. Sometimes I don’t do all three, sometimes I just do 2, but we still have so much fun. This is especially great because we live in snowy land and we get so crazy with cabin fever in the winter! I like the crafts especially because we generally always have the supplies at home!
This book is a must have for moms! I have loved using it and I have loved the bonding that my my boys and I have done while using the book! Thanks so much to the author for letting me review it!!!
