Spending quality time with your children, at any age, is one of the great pleasures of parents and grandparents everywhere. Weekends, holidays and family nights out are those special times that everyone reminisces about for a lifetime. And then there is summer - long days at the beach or pool, family holidays, lazy days with family and friends. This all sounds great until you realise there is just too much summer, too much leisure time and too many children hanging around the house complaining they are bored. In this wonderfully creative and thoughtful book, author Ann Kepler helps beleaguered mums and dads to fill the long void of summer holidays with enjoyable, entertaining and (dare to mention) educational activities designed to thoroughly engage both children and parents.
