    Great resource! We plan to use these ideas with our new Moms & Tots monthly drop in program!

    This is a fantastic resource. The books selected are the right length and deal with a great variety of issues. Many times the parents have said how they are dealing with the very issues the books addressed (fears, self-value). Fun activities and ideas to go along with each book. This was such a good connection time that it morphed into a Moms Bible/Book study group that has been helpful for many moms. Thank you for the time put into this and the impact it is making.

    We used this resource this past summer – it was so fun to see our little friends on Thursday mornings. The books suggested are great, the activities were a lot of fun (ice cubes with bugs!) and everyone enjoyed being together. We had a lot of families borrowing our books to take home and read again. (I found many of them from used bookstores on line because we wanted to build our library, but you can also find all of them at your local public library.)

    Such a fun playdate curriculum! We are adapting this curriculum for our MOPS program and it is low-prep on my end (the coordinator) and even lower prep on the teacher’s end!!
