Friday motivation: 6 inspiring quotes for every kid

The power of learning through practice and play (plus free content for kids to start right away)


Long passed are the days when children learned using only textbooks and had to memorize things by heart, sometimes without actually truly understanding them. Nowadays more and more parents and educators realize that the most effective learning comes through play and practice. In order to gain knowledge and understand information kids need resources that foster their creativity, support their natural curiosity and let them use many senses.  That is how children discover the surrounding world and learn how it works, in the meantime getting bonus skills such as development of cognitive skills and social skills.

While choosing educational toys and books for kids, it’s important to pick the ones that match the child’s interests and instead of imposing certain activities on kids, suggest the resources they might like. Samantha Kemp-Jackson in her article ”Stop Forcing Summer Activities On Your Children” explains the dangers of structured time and notes down the benefits of the free play.

The benefits of play and practice were also our inspiration for creating the new series for kids aged 4-9. We are excited to announce they have just gone live on Amazon! Each of the 3 books fosters children’s creativity, promotes family time and helps kids learn through play and practice. Great blend of education with entertainment! But don’t just take our word for that – scroll down to get free samples of the books.
