    Comments about The Useful Book:

    I am an early childhood teacher and have the original The Useful Book which is fantastic. I was skeptical about getting this book but figured why not as it was for Playschool's 50th Anniversary. I tried not to compare it to the original but couldn't help being disappointed in this book. Unlike the first which contains songs a plenty as well as recipes and games, this one seems to lack songs (which probably because I use constantly I am biased to liking!). There are arts and craft and recipes a plenty in this book. I would recommend this to parents and families as it is probably more suited for families...but if you're looking at this as an educational resource I would recommend the Useful Books before this one instead :)

        I have the original Play school Useful book and this is indeed USEFUL. It has extra information and sheet music. Family related topics and major crafting ideas.
        This 50th one is a let down. Maybe they should of followed the same format as original.
