Preschool is a child's first step out into the world. Small wonder, then, that parents can become plagued by doubts and seemingly unanswerable questions: Is my child ready for school? What kind of classroom environment is best for my ? How are medical emergencies handled? What about contagious diseases? What if my child doesn't make friends at school?

Until now, parents have had nowhere to turn for answers, no authoritative and soothing voice to guide and counsel them. Doris Herman's Preschool Primer for Parents is a gift of warmth and reassurance from the most beloved preschool teacher in our nation's capital. For twenty-five years, Doris Herman's commonsense wisdom has made her a cherished teacher and treasured resource for generations of parents and their children.

Herman is a master at involving parents as partners in their child's learning. Her book is packed with questions and answers that child-development books won't give you. As one grateful parent writes, "Even when we don't know what to ask, Doris poses the question for us. Here is a collection of her hands-on solutions and understanding, arranged according to a table of contents that is the answer to every parent's prayer!"
