Great Parent Summer-Read Giveaway: 5 Signed Book Copies of YEAR of LITTLE LESSON PLANS -- Just in the Nick of Time! (US/CAN)

The school-kids are coming -- are you ready?!

Award-winning author and busy mom of 3, Courtney Loquasto, wrote…

YEAR of LITTLE LESSON PLANS:
10 Minutes of Smart, Fun Things to Teach Your Little Ones Ages 3-8 Each Weekday

…because she was finding that all of the interesting things about everyday life she meant to teach her kids were taking a backseat to the day-to-day distractions that come along with raising them. Well, that and many of the historical facts and data about our world might have gotten ... ahem ... a bit “fuzzy” over the years.

So Courtney wrote and researched short, easy, age-appropriate lessons for parents to give their kids each weekday, in order to take advantage of those little golden teaching moments that happen throughout the family’s day (regardless of who forgets their lunch or has a stomach bug).

YEAR of LITTLE LESSON PLANS just won an Indie Book Award for Non-Fiction E-book, and was the Amazon #1 Bestseller for “Family Activities” in January and April. These little lessons have served as conversation-starters for families sitting in carpool or around the dinner table all over the world, and can now provide you with a little relief from the stress of having to come up with something new and interesting to talk about, each and every day -- just in time for summer!

We're giving away 5 signed copies of YEAR of LITTLE LESSON PLANS (paperback) -- just see the details below about how to enter! The book also reads great on a smartphone / e-reader, so if you'd rather take the book with you on your adventures, here’s a link to purchase the Kindle version ($7.99 on Amazon).

Best of luck, and Happy Summer!

  2. I like that this is a ten minute activity, since it can be challenging to keep some kids attention for longer than that sometimes.
