Praise for The Homegrown Preschooler:
I've been in the childcare and education of young children field for almost 30 years. This is the first book I would recommend specifically for homeschooling preschoolers. I especially recommend this book because of the open-ended play and creativity the authors so perfectly honor with activities that are developmentally appropriate and will encourage children to think and to trust their own ideas. Well done! Five Stars without a second thought!

"The book is just overflowing with wonderful information about why learning at home is so beneficial for our littlest children. How they benefit from a rich and comfortable family environment. They cover child development and explain how children's social, emotional, physical, and cognitive domains grow so richly in a fruitful and playful environment."
