About the book:

LEARNING BEGINS AT BIRTH! Research on brain development has shown that any attempt to maximize intellectual growth must begin the first three years of life; the younger the child, the stronger the effect. Beginning education at age five is too late!

The new, large (8 x 11 inch), 352-page 4th edition of SLOW AND STEADY GET ME READY includes 260 weekly, age-appropriate developmental activities that are easy to understand and do. This unique book is your answer to early childhood education and now contains updated illustrations, Measurable Parameters To Profile Child Development, Tips For Solving Behavioral Dilemmas, The Early Brain and Important Points.

SLOW AND STEADY GET ME READY is a highly recommended early childhood developmental parenting resource that tells you when, how and what skills to develop, provides an inexpensive phonetic approach for reading and spelling, contains a complete readiness curriculum full of ideas, enriches the parent child bond with close interaction and develops preschool skills, painlessly and in proper order. It only takes only about ten minutes for each activity.

This wonderful, helpful book now provides an easy, cost-saving method to measure the progress of a child to determine when the child should be ready for kindergarten. A simple checklist guide of developmental characteristics has proven to be a useful tool for parents and childcare providers to monitor progress by observation for children from birth to age five. This guide is useful for parents, teachers, Head Start, etc., because there is little paper work  just a checklist.

SLOW AND STEADY GET ME READY was divinely inspired and is based upon Mark 9:36-37. Jesus taught his disciples to welcome children. This was a new approach in a society where children were usually treated as second-class citizens. Unfortunately, children are often still regarded as second-class citizens around the world. We hope that by interacting with them closely in an appropriate manner, as recommended in this book, parents will realize children are their most precious asset and will treat them accordingly.

This valuable, but inexpensive, resource has been found to be useful for children with special needs (e.g., autism, learning disabilities, Downs Syndrome, etc.).

SLOW AND STEADY GET ME READY is an inexpensive book that provides 5 years of activities at approximately a penny a day!

The best thing to spend on your child is your time!
