This is an excellent resource for busy parents or parents looking for something new and different. The author has divided the activities by month and by inside and outside ideas. It would be difficult for someone to pick this book up and not find something that they could do with their kids. I think it is a wonderful edition to our library of idea books. One of my favorite ideas was found in the month of May - it was to find and watch worms. We love doing this! I give my children a hand spade and we see who can find the most worms in the flower bed and then we see who's worm is the longest and who's is the fattest. These ideas are all simple and not cost prohibitive. Every family can find something.
Thank you Sourcebook for this review copy.
