Childcraft: About Me

Every time I open up a new to me volume of Childcraft, three things happen:

1. I marvel at the intelligent and child loving content.

2. My kids find me (no matter where I am) and pore over the pages with me.

3. My sense that these books are the key to elementary education is affirmed and strengthened.

The About Me book is a really neat combination of child development, child psychology, and “health”. Presented in a way that fascinates and engages the child, it can only be compared to Mister Rogers. It is my opinion that pre-1990 Childcraft is the Mister Rogers of the children’s library.

Each section starts with a poem and some thoughtful questions.

***NOTE: There is one very frank (but wholesome) section about pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
