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

The book is repetitive...but obviously on purpose and in a very intentional, intelligent way. Angela recognizes that preschoolers are not the only ones who benefit from well-constructed repetition! There were many times I felt that I should be taking notes at the beginning of the chapter, only to find that the concepts really were written to be "sticky" in my mind without having to reread notes.
Angela is a preschool genius and I truly will be FOREVER recommending this book to preschool parents. BUY IT! :)
This is a great book that you will continue to reference as you navigate the world of preschoolers.
