Mommy, Teach Me!


My friend Addie, an amazingly committed and talented mommy, recommended this book as a resource to use for teaching pre-school aged children at home and instilling in them a love of learning. I just got my copy of the book a week or so ago, and I love it and wanted to recommend it to you too!

It could be especially helpful to many missionary moms who might not have access to a local pre-school, as it is all about how to teach pre-school skills to your own children. It has a very fun, hands on, creative approach and encourages mothers to recognize the many learning opportunities all around us in daily life. It has a ton of creative activity ideas and lists of the materials that would be helpful and fun for all sorts of activities. It lists the activities by the type of concepts that they teach and gives very clear instructions as well as some pictures.

If you have a pre-school aged child, even if he/she does already go to pre-school, I highly recommend this book as a guide to some very fun and high quality learning!

    I definitely love this book. I also enjoy her other books, especially The Mommy Manual.

    What ages is the book geared for? I’m wondering if I should have my mother-in-law bring it in this summer for Anneka (going on 2 years) or if I should wait until we’re in the States to get in (when she’s 2.5 or 3).

    This book would be great for a 2 year old! Many of the activities are either just fine as they are or could be easily modified for a younger toddler.

    wow, thank you! I LOVE Barbara Curtis’ work. Her other books and various online articles and blog are very intriguing to read. I just finished “Lord, Please Meet Me in the Laundry Room” and highly recommend it.
