Your child wants to do things WITH you!

More than anything, your child wants focused time with you. Everyday life can be full of adventure and packed full of great learning experiences. At the end of the day, make up a story that involved the same experience you had with your child that day. Andy Ant stories were all initially based on things my daughter did the same day.  Create a teaching character that lasts in the child’s mind for a lifetime.
