I was totally excited to get this review material- this subject matter is of my own heart. 'Remedy' should be my middle name...and Vintage...well that just screams 'wealth of knowledge' to me. :)
Over the years I've learned (and dabbled in) herbs, tinctures and simplistic cooking/living. I received Vintage Remedies for Kids to review- and how appropriate- did you know I have a multitude of kiddos? I admit, they tend to be my test-subjects. Anyway...onward to the good stuff!
This book is geared for young learners ages 2-6, both boys and girls. Kiddos learn how to identify healthy foods and have a hand in creating healthy snacks for their families. Each of the 18 chapters has a brief introduction for the parents, a section to read to the children, followed by hands-on activities perfect for littles (that's what I call my younger crowd). There are also sample schedules included for use at home or in a playgroup setting (and convenient shopping lists).
This new workbook is packed with projects covering every aspect of natural living including wellness, nutrition, immunity, natural body care, and the conservative use of valuable natural resources - in terms they will understand and remember! The workbook is flexible and can be used also as a fun family project. Children at this age learn best with active lessons, so this isn't a sit and read style picture book! It's a guide for parents that is packed with hands on activities that are perfect for little hands, but fun for all ages. You can pick up a copy of this book for $25, here.
