I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hands-on-Prints books. I received books to facilitate my review.
We’re halfway through May and just a few weeks away from school ending, but homeschool is on my mind more than ever as I watch all of my daughter’s friends enroll for the big K. I go back and forth constantly on what we should do: do we enroll? do we wait a year? there’s a homeschool co-op not too far away and they offer a great curriculum that I think we’ll enjoy.
So for now I wait. At home we play and we read, and while my daughter is still young I just appreciate knowing that we can learn so, so much just by doing what we’re doing!
I don’t typically do reviews on this site, but today I’m making an exception to share this new series I was introduced to.
The Hands-on-Prints books were written with an emphasis on consciousness and mindfulness, they’re about educating and inspiring children. In an age of iPads and iPads (my kids have both), I love being able to sit down with them and go through the experience of reading, touching, feeling, turning pages, tracing letters, and so much more.
The Hands-on-Prints series was written by Christinia Cheung after establishing a Montessori school that celebrates differences in personality, learning preferences and cultural backgrounds. This series of five books inspire simple and complex learning about the world, incorporating tactile elements and vibrant, interactive visual experience for children.
- Geometry through Architecture
- Around the World from A to Z
- A Persistent Vine
- Nuts for Coconuts
- Do I have to? What if I don’t want to
The Around the World from A to Z book is a hearty, thick book that teaches the letters using examples of things from all around the world. These are books for children, but they’re a far cry from a typical child’s book. They’re designed to foster children’s knowledge and sense of discovery; they are engaging in a way that broadens consciousness and encourages mindfulness.
The book Do I have to? What if I don’t want to stood out to me in a surprising way. It’s a kid’s book, but it’s really meant for adults.
The book puts you in the shoes of a child who is tired of being told what to do all of the time.
The baby was especially enamored with this one because of all of the mini books inside of it. I think reading it to him early and often would be a good way to help him identify with his own frustrations when certain situations come up. Common things like not wanting to eat veggies or go to bed on time.
It lets kids know in a peaceful way that we don’t always see eye-to-eye with them but there are ways to come to conclusions and compromise. Mostly, though, it lets parents see options on how to deal with tantrums and how we can preemptively deal with issues before they get out of control.
We all know as parents how quickly things can escalate out of control, right?
