I Saw a Purple Cow, and 100 Other Recipes for Learning,

4.36 of 5 stars 4.36  ·  rating details  ·  14 ratings  ·  4 reviews
It has been 25 years since this handbook of early learning activities was published and immediately established itself as a book that anyone working with young children had to own. The lists of useful things to buy and save are still current and useful, and the activities are as easy and intriguing today as they were when the book was originally published.
Unknown Binding, 96 pages
Published January 1st 1972 by Little Brown and Company

Shelves: parenting
This book is great for those who don't have a lot of creativity when it comes to activities and art projects for children.
Out of the 101 ideas, there were only four that I hadn't already thought of, heard of, or read about.....
Lots of great ideas - classic! Love all the easy games.
