Themes include All About Me, Alphabet, Animals, Art, Building and Construction, Celebrations, Colors, Five Senses, Health and Nutrition, Insects and Bugs, Kindness, Math, Music and Movement, My Community and Neighborhood, My Family and Friends, My School, Numbers, Our Earth, Plants, Science and Technology, Seasons, Shapes, Time, Transportation, Water, and Weather.

My Take on the Book
This was an amazing collection of activities that any parent or teacher of young children will appreciate. I was impressed not only with the breadth of the book but also the depth. I also enjoyed how well each of the activities were laid out for the reader, making each activity very simple to implement. I tried out a few of the activities and was impressed with how much fun my youngest daughter had with it. I am looking forward to using this over the next year with her as I know that she will have fun while learning which is what this book is all about!
