Learning through play is as natural and important for young children as breathing. With Do-It-Yourself Early Learning, you can create toys that help children become more confident, develop their intellect, and encourage play and exploration-all with materials easily found at your local hardware store or home center.Written by two experienced family child care providers, this book explains the construction and use of a variety of engaging and kid-tested play props, equipment, and activities.
Jeff A. Johnson has more than 18 years of child care experience. A former center director, he operates a family child care program and is a board member of the National Association for Family Child Care. He is the author of several Redleaf Press books and presents at conferences across the nation.
