This book was written in 1974, before Hobby Lobby, the internet and NCLB. Back then Kindergarten was a time to explore and learn the basics such as colors, shapes, letter sounds and ordinal numbers. The ideas in this book may seem quaint, but you can make the crafts and prepare the lessons without having to procure exotic materials. My favorite idea was making animals out of wadded paper and pipe cleaners. You can even make a ride-on sized version using stuffed paper bags and a saw horse! If you are looking for some old-school ways to educate and entertain your toddler, this would be a good choice.
