Play Time : Activities for Little Children That Can Make a Big Difference
As parents, grandparents or carers, most of us struggle at least a little to get down to young children's level and engage with them and their world. What do we say? How do we play? What do we do if they don't stay and play? Playtime explains how children learn and communicate through play, and what easy things you can do to make this a happy and rewarding experience for you both. Whether you're looking at house numbers whole out walking, inventing a new kind of hat or cutting up a banana together, there are ways to make the most of valuable time with your child. This book includes all sorts of games and ideas for children aged 1-5, as well as babies.
