Editorial Reviews

Review

"Angela is carrying on Fred's legacy with her work in children's media -- like a modern day Fred Rogers." – Joanne Rogers

“Angela Santomero is a bigger showrunner than Vince Gilligan, David Milch, and Judd Apatow combined — to a kid. The creator of 
Blue CluesSuper Why!Creative Galaxy — and yes, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood — is the driving force behind the best educational programming for children.” –Fatherly.com

“In this practical and research-based guide, Santomero, 
Blue’s Clues cocreator and creator of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and other children’s TV shows, helps parents of preschoolers understand how to use media effectively and age appropriately… Parents will find plenty of fresh ideas for raising “smart, inspired, and engaged” preschoolers in this wise and enthusiastic text.”—Publishers Weekly

"Leave it to the genius behind Blue’s Clues and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Angela Santomero to translate her knowledge of child development research into the ultimate parenting book. It includes guiding principles and hundreds of easy and fun everyday activities parents and teachers can use to raise children to be thoughtful, caring and truly engaged learners!”
Ellen Galinsky, author of Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs

“Angela Santomero reveals the elements that make her shows both entertaining and educational, and clues parents to do the same in their everyday moments with young children.”–Joanna Faber and Julie King, authors of
How To Talk So Little Kids Will Listen 

“Children are active and children are curious. Angela Santomero, who has harnessed their curiosity with brilliant children’s television, has brought her creative instincts and solid developmental science to bear on how we can join and parent children in their world which so seamlessly spans the physical and the digital. With this active verb-driven, warm and humorous guide, she offers clues to understanding and enjoying our young children while directing their endless energy toward their best selves."
Michael Rich, MD, The Mediatrician Director, Center on Media and Child Health (CMCH), Boston Children's Hospital Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School

“Fans of 
Blue’s Clues and Santomero’s other popular children’s shows will enjoy her practical advice and conversational tone. Educators and parents will likely find a takeaway or two in this breezy, informative read.”—Library Journal

“[Santomero] incorporates numerous examples of day-to-day interactions with toddlers as well as handy charts and bulleted lists that get to the heart of each chapter, condensing the important information into bite-size bits for the busy parent… An entertaining and educational analysis of how toddlers learn."—
Kirkus
