To make the most of the book, it's best to start new activities when your child is rested and ready to learn, like after breakfast or after a nap. Begin with about 15 minutes a day. It's OK to continue for longer if your child is interested and having fun, but don't let activities become a chore. Take the book wherever you go, for impromptu opportunities to learn. Remember to give praise for his efforts; kids will be inspired by your enthusiasm. And join in the fun yourself! At the end of each chapter is a bonus activity like a craft, recipe or science project that will be even more meaningful if you do it together.
