Preschoolers and Peace is one of those books that a homeschooling mom should purchase in August, but wait to read in December or January. It is one of those books that can help you recharge and refocus on the job at hand.
I thought I had seen it all with preschoolers until my sweet little red head turned 5 years old. Technically, he is not a preschooler any more, but team him up with his 3 year old brother and they are a force to be reckoned with!
After our first two “official” weeks of school this year, I found myself wondering if I could really do this. After reading Preschoolers and Peace, I am armed with a fresh perspective lots of new ideas.
Christmas is coming soon. If you know a homeschooling mom with a preschooler, Preschoolers and Peace would make a perfect gift. Chances are, she will be needing a book like this at the end of the first semester.
