I really like this series of books and get a new one every time we enter a problem zone with the kiddo (biting, hitting, etc.). Recently, he started hating getting ready to go out (such as putting his shoes on, getting in the car seat, etc.). This book didn't help with that stuff. It's basically about being in a good mood and acting politely when you are out, which is great. However, I was hoping it would be in line with the other books -- there's a problem, here's a way of dealing with it (deep breathing, etc.). The kids are too good of a mood in this book!
This is a good book for getting kids a sense of what needs to be done in order to leave the house - and what happens when they leave the house. Some things I didn't like: the mom talks about using quiet indoor voices as they enter the store, and on the next page, the kids throw a fit over wanting junk food cereal (I didn't like how it was handled - it seemed like it was just showing off what bad behavior is without having any solution/prevention/distraction for the mom or the kids); when the kids get home, one of them leaves his shoes right where everyone has to step to come into the room; they grab their own granola bars as snacks to bring. Yay for the book having a cat.
My Review: On-the-Go Time is a board book for toddlers about good behavior. Toddlers are always on the go so this book teaches about Get ready, get set and Go. According to the author, "Get ready, get set, go get into coats...out the door ...into the car. With On-the-Go Time, shopping and running errands with children really can mean fewer hassles and more fun for everyone!"This book contains help tips for parents and caregivers to help keep toddlers moving like scheduling appointments in between children's meals and naps to ensure they are rested and ready to go, making a go-time list that would help the child to look forward to. And before you leave home, give your child a chance to use the bathroom or drink a cup of water and snack to take along and many more.This is an easy to read book with great illustrations. If you're searching for a book to teach your toddler about good behavior this is it.FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from free spirit publishing in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
Love this book. My 20 month old copies some of the things in it and asks to read it all the time. It has short phrases/sentences on each page and wonderful illustrations which keeps her short attention span. The general ideas are fabulous and I know this will be a great book/reminder for my daughter for years to come. Highly recommended.
This series of books has been great for my 2 year old; they capture his attention - which is hard to do. They are well written (easy to add-lib personal things you want to touch on), very colorful, good length.
I LOVE this book series. My granddaughter loves books and these are always her first 'go to' when she wants to read. Thanks to the author for a very well written series that actually teaches toddlers!
I love this whole series of books, my toddler really seems to learn from books. He looks at the drawings of children in these books and they become role models. It is easier for me to guide his behavior if I have a clear example of other children behaving in that certain way. This particular book has helped us get out the door a little faster-- and it gives me language to use to encourage him-- like can you be a "super helper" and get your shoes on!
A great book to teach toddlers what they need to do when they are on the go. I bought few books from these series. My daughter loves the pictures and reading the book with me.
