Dorothy Einon's Pre-school Play Book
A resource for parents, childminders and all who care for small children, this book contains instructions for more than 100 games, many of which do not require adult supervision, toys or expense. The underlying benefit for a child's development is explained for each game. Games are arranged chronologically in three sections: the first two years; the pre-school years; and six to ten years. Some of the games are traditional, some new; some involve a little DIY using household materials; some are solitary, some need to be done in groups. A classified index tells the reader where to find quiet games or playing alone; quiet games to play with others; noisy games to play alone; and noisy games to play with others.
