Full of ideas of things to do with young children. Most of the ideas were too old for Sandy, I wouldn't mind re-reading this book in a year or two.

To teach left and right, she suggests putting together a box of accessories such as shoes, scarves, and bracelets and asking your child to put the shoe on his right foot, the red bracelet on her left arm, etc.
