At last! A book has finally arrived that takes the worry out of parent-teacher communication. This innovative and original guide makes it easy for preschool teachers to connect with parents and involve them in the learning process using family meetings.

Each meeting begins with an icebreaker, allowing families to mix and mingle, and then continues with multiple activities that give parents the opportunity to experience first-hand what their child is learning. The suggested meetings address a variety of topics, with enticing titles such as "Are You Hungry for Fun?" and "Magical Art Mixtures." Teachers, parents, and children alike will treasure each meeting as they build relationships and form a community of learners.
