We have been blessed with children who love to read so we have our own Children's library in our home with 1000's of books for our children to choose from. Many times our children would rather sit down with a book than to play with toys so I am always on the lookout for quality books that I can share with them.
Award winning writer, educator and family advocate Susan Magsamen recently released a book called The Classic Treasury of Childhood Wonders which starts out with one of the most powerful thoughts I have ever heard. "If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves." I loved that so much that I made it my Facebook status when I read it!
About the Book:
Catching your shadow. Daydreaming. Banging pots. Dress-Up. In today’s fast-paced and over-scheduled world of carpools, activity spreadsheets and Nintendo DS, simple wonders of childhood -- and the special moments between parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and the little ones they love -- are often lost. In Childhood Wonders, Susan masterfully blends a vintage design and feel with a collection of activities, poems, nursery rhymes and art that underscores her philosophy on the best ways to encourage learn-through-play experiences and create special memories to last a lifetime.
Divided into five sections that illuminate a child’s world and interests -- Magic and Make-Believe; Outdoor Exploring; Crafts and Construction; Yummy for the Tummy; and Bedtime, Bathtime, and Dreamtime -- Childhood Wonders is more than a great gift book. It gives families a tool to reconnect with childhood whimsy and explore the importance of learning through play. During this season of off-the-hook consumerism and more, more, more,Childhood Wonders is a unique and lasting gift for kids, families, new parents and grandparents.
This is a MUST HAVE book on every homes bookshelf! If you are looking for a great gift that will be enjoyed over and over again, consider The Classic Treasury of Childhood Wonders!!! For insant fun,games and crafts, visit the Susan Magsamen's Family Stories Website!
