This is a nice little book that is easy to flip through to find simple little activities and games to play with your toddler. I can't think of any that required materials other than stuff I already had. Most of the activities are simply songs, word games, and ideas for identifying and grouping objects. All of the games for young toddlers are designed to be only a minute or two. They become more structured for the child's age. I really liked this little book and plan to use many of its ideas.
I liked it! Some of the games are kind of obvious but a lot of them I wouldn't have thought of and Claire has enjoyed a few of them. I checked it out because we are going stir crazy indoors all day in this cold weather! About 1/3 of the games were too advanced for Claire but a lot of them she enjoys, so if you are looking for something to do I'd get it our check it out.
