The creative activities in this book by Judy Herr provide interesting and exciting materials for pre-school children's development. specifically, the materials listed in this book are readily available within reach in the local groceries, market and even in our own kitchen. I recommend this book to Day Care teachers specially to those involved in a culturally sensitive curriculum for early childhood.
