These are some of the books that are consistently getting the most rave reviews from actual parents of preschoolers on-line. Not surprisingly, there are some methods that work beautifully for some parents and children, while failing miserably for others. What a surprise!
Again, we are all unique as parents and so are our children. Find a method that you believe honors your spiritual values, your personality and that of your child. Throw in a little common sense, some grace for imperfection and enjoy! This time will pass all too fast.
