I had the opportunity to review Preschoolers and Peace: Homeschooling Older Kids With Success While Loving the Little Ones at Your Feet by Kendra Fletcher over at Preschoolers and Peace.
This ebook is 47 pages in length including the Table of Contents and Resources. It is a VERY easy read. I was so excited to get it I downloaded it and read it immediately. It took me just over 30 minutes to read it in its entirety…perfect for the busy homeschooling preschooling mom. Oh…by the way…I am NOT a preschooling mom any longer. *grin* However I do have a VERY ACTIVE 6-year-old so I was excited to see if this would offer any help to me and my situation – of homeschooling an older with a younger. With that, let me say, this is really geared more for the preschooler and younger.
For the homeschooling mother of littles…this will be an INVALUABLE RESOURCE! Kendra gives DETAILED thoughts and examples. She doesn’t just say “have them do chores,” she shares a LIST OF CHORES that can be done. She doesn’t just say “put them in front of the television,” she gives a list of educational things they can watch. This may seem “nice” to some…but to those who are walking in that moment…INVALUABLE!
She starts the eBook with the Lord and she walks with Him throughout the entire thing. I think I love this point the most. He is something we start with and walk the rest of our journey with. We get love and grace and we give love and grace (to our children AND to OURSELVES).
I loved everything about this book…it is easy to read and understand, it is in a font that is easy to read and spaced in a way that my eyes didn’t hurt. There are only a few pictures throughout the book (always nice to get more words than pictures when you pay for something!) but the pictures are in color and are pleasing to the eye.
She not only shares the “difficulties” of times with littles but she also shares the joys of having olders to help with things.
Overall, I GREATLY enjoyed this eBook and wished I had had something like this only a few short years ago when our smallest was a bit younger. BUT with that I am also VERY EXCITED to be able to share the good word with others – that this is a wonderful resource for new homeschooling moms and/or those with littles (preschoolers).
The author, Kendra Fletcher, started her blog “Preschoolers and Peace” back in 2006 as a way to share her thoughts and experiences with others. It has continued to grow since then. From that she has provided this ebook with a lot of information in one easy to find place…important for those with VERY LITTLE time!
