As a former teacher and as a mother of an energetic preschooler, I am always looking for new learning products that will excite and entertain my son. Some of my favorites are the workbooks from the Ready-Set-Learn series. I really think that these books are must-haves for parents of young children. There are so many titles to choose from that cover several different skills. So far for my 4-year-old, I have bought Preschool Activities, Preschool Fun, Alphabet, and Beginning Math. We skip around and work on pages out of each of them in random order. Jack likes choosing the pages. Each workbook comes with 180 stickers and a reward chart to track progress.
After completing each page, Jack loves to put one sticker on the finished page and one on the racetrack reward chart, and then he can’t wait to start on his next page. He is getting so much practice with academic skills all while loving every minute of it. It makes mommy so happy, too! I always keep one book in the car and one at Grandma’s house. I love taking them with us to restaurants because they keep him seated, quiet, and engaged—and it always impresses those waiting on our table! I also buy them for other kids as birthday presents. They’re only $2.99 each, so I can’t pass up the great deal.
