Editorial Reviews

The Giant Encyclopedia Of Monthly Activities: For Children 3 To 6, written by the team of teachers Kathy Charner, Maureen Murphy, and Charlie Clark for use by fellow teachers, is a vast compendium of inexpensive and educational classroom ideas. Organized by the recommended school month for each group of activities, suggestions range from "Everyone Needs a Nametag" (September) to "Pumpkin Math" (October), "Snow Painting" (January), "Paper Daffodils" (March) and much more. With over 600 options, ranging from projects that take a few minutes to long-running activities over the course of a month, The Giant Encyclopedia Of Monthly Activities is a near-inexhaustible treasure trove of clever ideas. Highly recommended for educators, day care centers, babysitters, and anyone else who works with young children. - Midwest Book Review
