If there’s any excuse for screen time, it’s Play School’s 50th birthday this month. In case kids need a break, there’s The Useful Book: 50th Anniversary Edition.
The Useful Book is a beautiful activity book that’s perfect for days too rainy or cold to go outside. In case you haven’t stepped outside lately, that’s every day between now and September.
It’s illustrated by Jedda Robaard, the artist behind books like The Little Mouse Who Lost its Squeak and The Little Koala Who Lost its Tree. Justine Clarke wrote the introduction.
There are indoor activities and games, delicious kid-friendly recipes, and songs. The book has enough to keep kids busy until Play School starts in the afternoon.
The Useful Book is available in the ABC shop, and until 31 July, it’s on sale for $17.99.
