"Regular readers of Being Savvy know that we turn to this book all the time! What would we do without it? There is really no other book that delves into the nitty-gritty of a preschooler's existence in today's world like this one. The authors are long-time preschool teachers and parents as well, and their experience and hard-earned wisdom is evident on every page. From the ins and outs of finding the right preschool and helping your child thrive in this first school setting to toilet-training, playdates, family time and on and on -- this book has you covered. The approach to each topic is admirably balanced and thorough, and aimed to promote children's (and parents'!) self-confidence and happiness through these precious early years. Just the helping hand we all need! "
Named a best book of 2007
