Little Lennons Busy Books are made-to-order by a Preschool Teacher/Director turned stay-at-home mommy with the goal of helping out other parents. Let my background in finding creative ways to engage children benefit you! The goal of a Busy Book is to engage and educate your little one while you're at home or on-the-go and provide skill-building activities to children ages 1-10. Each unique book has re-usable, dry-erase activities chosen specifically for your child based on interests and developmental abilities. When you order, you will have the chance to specify your own theme and your own ideas for what your kiddo could benefit from. Each page is laminated for durability and the activities use sturdy VELCRO® brand hook and loop fasteners that not only promotes fine motor muscles, but can take a beating as those muscles grow stronger!
This all-inclusive activity book has several pages that I call "activity pages". These pages use laminated cards and VELCRO to make the book more interactive.
Take a Busy Book with you when you're on the go. The all-inclusive book can go to the doctor's office, a restaurant, church or even on a long car trip/airplane flight and keep your little one quiet and busy while building skills they'll need for school. Busy Books make great birthday presents, big sibling gifts, summer bridge activities and can go virtually anywhere with you and be an instant source of quiet entertainment! Use them for toddler/preschooler/kindergartener quiet time in the afternoons too!
Pages are easy to use with a dry-erase crayon or marker and a cloth eraser. Stained pages can easily be cleaned with a magic eraser by Mr. Clean.
General Busy Books include 10 double-sided, laminated (dry-erase) custom activity pages (20 activities!), a canvas case for storing pieces, a felt square eraser and a washable dry-erase marker in a personalized 3-ring binder. Every activity can be used over and over again! You'll also find fun VELCRO activities, games using dice and lacing cards!
**Busy Books come in two sizes, 5 double-sided pages or 10 double-sided pages. The smaller book is EXACTLY THE SAME as the bigger book- the ONLY difference is the number of pages. This will get you a more condensed version of the larger book**

Little Lennons Busy Books are unique and made to order by a teacher, based on the developmental needs of your child according to age and interests. I have many years of experience working with and developing lesson plans for children of all ages and abilities, including those with IEP's. I have had the pleasure of working with therapists and creating wonderful Busy Books for children who could benefit from some very specific skill practice. Please feel free to email me to discuss your book littlelennons @ gmail.com
