Gryphon House is proud to announce that one of our new parenting books has won the prestigious National Parenting Center Seal of Approval. Congratulations to: Banish Boredom: Activities to Do with Kids That You'll Actually Enjoy by Rebecca Green. Read the review:
Looking for ideas to occupy, entertain and even educate your kids during those lull periods when they are complaining about being bored? Banish Boredom is full of suggestions for parents that they will enjoy as much as their kids. The book preaches the importance of considering not only the child’s personality when choosing activities, but to consider their own interests as well, because a happy parent makes for happy kids. The book has something for everyone, from creative art projects to interesting science projects. From exciting sensory projects to fun outdoor activities and field trips. Banish Boredom does much more than simply tell you the activity ideas, it also explains how to prepare for each activity and lists what you will need before you begin. Parents found the book to be easy to read and understand thanks in part to the helpful pictures that illustrate the activities. It even gives resource ideas for the activities including online sources for arts & crafts and science project suppliers. Since we tested this during the summer months parents were especially thrilled to have discovered it and the ideas inside.
