Knack Parenting a Preschooler provides busy parents with a visually driven reference filled with information about behaviors, general care advice, and skills development for the three- to five-year-old age group. Also covering preschoolers’ vastly changing abilities, it guides parents skills needed for beginning school successfully and what to expect from different types of preschools (e.g., Montessori, child-centered, parent co-op). Coauthored by an M.D. and an educator, it organizes chapters by year and activity or behavior, so that parents can easily find answers to the questions they have about their child at the specific stage he or she is in.
