Preschoolers and Peace is a company that has written 2 ebooks. This time we reviewed their newest one Preschoolers and Peace: Homeschooling older kids with success while loving the little ones at your feet (e-book, $2.99)
About The Company:
Preschoolers and Peace is an excellent blog written by Kendra Fletcher and Michelle White. This blog is completely full of homeschooling ideas for many ages. The focus is on preschoolers but many ideas work for all different ages.
About The Product:
This e-book is a short read, I think they know us homeschooling moms don’t have very much time. This book was written by a mother of 8 children ranging from adult to age 5. She pulled the best of the best from the Preschoolers and Peace blog and created The Preschoolers and Peace: Homeschooling older kids with success while loving the little ones at your feet.
The book is broken down into 13 chapters along with Meal Planning 101 at the end. Each chapter is only a few pages long, which was nice since it allowed me to pick it up and put it down easily as needed.
The chapters are:
What a Homeschooling Mom Needs
Preparing Yourself to Homeschool Older Kids With Little Ones Underfoot
Planning Around Preschoolers
How Do I Keep Them Busy?
What Does a 2-Year-Old's Day Look Like?
How Do I Get Any Preschooling Done?
How Not to Just Kill Time
Circle Time: Or How We Pull the Little Ones In
When All of Your Kiddos Are Preschoolers
Planning for Preschool
When Mama is Worn Out (or Pregnant)
Meal Planning 101
A day/week in our life:
My youngest in in Kindergarten, but don’t think that means this book has nothing for me. I actually found many helpful ideas in the book. I am organizationally challenged as well as we have a hard time sticking to a schedule.
Most of the ideas can all be done with out purchasing anything more. An amazing tip that I got has to do with “five things.” You teach your little ones to do five things each day when they get up.
She talks about how to schedule with out being a slave to the schedule as well as has many scheduling ideas.
Our thoughts and feelings:
I learned a lot of things from reading this book. Things that will help me now and I can only imagine if I would have read it while I had 2, 3, or 4 year olds under foot it would have really been a lifesaver.
In the past I have reviewed another one of their e-books; Circle Time.
