How can you find books and magazines that nurture a child's love of reading? Safe and long-lasting toys that inspire the imagination? Audiotapes of superior musical quality? Computer software that is appealing and age-appropriate? Videotapes of educational value? The Preschool Resource Guide is an extraordinary resource for parents, educators, and caregivers who need to locate quality educational items for young children. With her invaluable experience in working closely with children and their families, Harriet Friedes, M.A., has been able to gather materials that, in age-appropriate fashion, educate and entertain, give the most value for the money, and engage a child's active intellectual capacities. With selection criteria based on endorsements from professional associations, members of the media, educators, and parents, this book is carefully designed to feature the following: the best, brand-specific books, magazines, toys and games, computer software, audiotapes, and videotapes; relevant insights on behavioral development; a helpful checklist of skills for kindergarten readiness; an extensive array of free and inexpensive materials to promote creativity; and an annotated listing of parenting literature and support groups devoted to preschool issues. The Preschool Resource Guide is an especially well timed publication in light of today's trend for children to begin school at earlier ages, the increased emphasis on preschool education, and the expensive products of dubious value pitched to the consumer. As a cost-conscious alternative to this approach, Ms. Friedes has conveniently designed individual chapters as self-contained units that feature prime preschool materials and vital information needed to enhance an appreciation and enjoyment of learning between child and parent. This engaging, comprehensive book will be referred to repeatedly by parents and other family members, teachers and administrators of early childhood education, nursery and kindergarte
