Time to Learn: "About Me" was a huge hit at our
house Ė for both the kids and me...the crafts in the book
arenít merely for the sake of doing them; they help your child
visualize a concept. Plus, there are no hard-to-find materials.
The 27 printables included in the book are not your typical
worksheet; they are top notch. Iím blown away by how well
Our Time to Learn teaches science concepts that are typically
saved until elementary school...It is a truly unique resource,
unlike anything Iíve seen.

I really appreciated the open and go aspect of this book.
The activities are well thought out with a supplies list of
everyday items and regular craft supplies. Plus step by step
directions including full color photos... the lessons build
on each other so children can learn how all the parts of the
body are interconnected. A fun book of games, crafts, worksheets,

We have had "About Me" in our house for about a week now.
I am not exaggerating when I say it is the first thing my
5-year-old daughter asks me about every day, and she wants
to return to it several times a day. She loves the activities,
the stickers, and the one-on-one time this book provides for
us. I love how brilliant it is in its simplicity. The concepts
are easy for children to grasp, and rarely does a lesson require
enough advanced preparation or materials to prohibit us from
doing it right away! We are already eagerly anticipating your
next installment. Thank You!!

I love the range of About Me. I use it as part of the structure
of my preschoolerís homeschool curriculum. But it could also
be a resource to tap into for rainy days, afterschool enrichment,
or bored Saturdays. The learning ideas are creative and inventive,
while the instructions and materials are simple and unintimidating.
It guides your discovery together in a satisfying way. I look
forward to the next installment!

"I love this book! "About Me" contains eighteen lessons
designed to teach preschool-aged children all about themselves
with fun, easy, and engaging activities. These activities
involve the children in lively, active, hands-on discovery
using simple experiments, making crafts with materials easily
found in the home or gathered, and incorporating quality children's
literature and music. Supplemental materials are especially
helpful; a craft supplies list for the entire book at the
beginning makes the crafts easily manageable, and colorful
worksheets and stickers at the end provide fun learning experiences
for preschoolers.This book is unique in its approach to preschool
learning, incorporating all types of typical brick-and-mortar
preschool activities into every lesson. This multi-faceted
approach makes About Me an ideal addition to any homeschool
library, or for anyone who would like to engage their preschoolers
in active, fun learning. I am eagerly awaiting the next book
in the series!"

"What a great workbook! Everything you could think of to teach
your preschooler and even kids older than that. As a teacher,
I was impressed by the depth of the material but yet the easy
language in which it is written. The projects are fun, attainable
for even little ones, and don't require a bunch of obscure
supplies to accomplish. I am a homeschooling mom of 3, and
this book is just the thing to add to round out our curriculum.
Would recommend this to anyone with small children!"

"It has quickly become a favorite part of my 2 little
oneís day. My three-year-old son and my six-year-old daughter
both beg to do it each day! We have been working through the
lessons slowly because my kids want to do EVERY activity that
is included in the book. So we usually spend a little time
each day on the various projects. Something else I have absolutely
loved is that it is teaching science in a gentle way to my
young ones. It is not all just fun, but has some wonderful
teaching in it, too! And, the work is all done for me. I donít
have to plan the lessons, just open & go."
