ABC’s and 123’s Book for Playful Learning
As an educator for 33 years, I’ve often fielded questions from parents and colleagues about appropriate ways to introduce literacy and math concepts to preschoolers. I’m honored to co-author the ABC’s and 123’s Book to guide parents and teachers toward developmentally appropriate practices for playful learning with their own kids at home or in the classroom.

All the activities in the book are FUN! Every activity has been tried, tested, and approved by our own children. The activities are based on play – your children will be exploring and learning through their senses. Preschoolers will love the engaging invitations while building important skills through play.
The activities have been carefully chosen to offer a wide range of math and literacy skills, working across the curriculum to incorporate play, imagination, science, sensory, and art. When kids are challenged to use critical thinking and to problem solve while PLAYING, they gain skills to last a lifetime.
What you’ll get in this book:
:: 40+ hands-on play ideas that will help your child build their letter and math skills :: multisensory activities for children aged 2 to 8 :: resources for parents and teachers, at home or in the classroom, with ideas for indoor and outdoor learning :: material lists, step-by-step instructions and full color photographs of every activity
