You can never have enough space. And if you can't, just think of your kids--all the time they have to spend in tight spaces--like cars, planes, trains, the doctor's office, the grocery store, being sick or housebound, waiting in line.

This book is a nice reference tool for some great activities to keep your kids entertained. All of the activities have purpose and meaning. They can help parents start to think about a child's play in a 'therapeutic' way. I was even able to get a few new ideas for therapy sessions at work. I skimmed the first half of the book, and went almost straight to the activities in the second half. There was some good information in the first half for parents and teachers.

FABULOUS. Will be looking to purchase used, perhaps. Some GREAT activities that have gotten us out of our winter rut.

Also, very positive about kids being squirrly, which I appreciate. They are just children, and I feel it is my job as a parent to do MORE than turn on the electronics. I don't just push buttons as a mother.

This was an interesting, quick read. I skimmed over the activities that were for older kids, or that didn't interest me, and took notes on ones that caught my eye, and I finished in about an hour or so. Lots of interesting ideas, and not just for "tight places" times.
