Although this book was written for teachers, anyone working with young children will benefit from reading this book -- parents, grandparents, nannies. The chapters on crayons and collage making I found particularly enlightening. There is nothing fancy here. Just some simple materials that you can provide young children introduced in a few specific ways that will help a child's physical development as well their creative thinking.
