Posted: Mon Aug 07, 2006 7:36 pm I may end up purchasing another book. The only thing that bothers me is the cost, as well as not being 100% sure of how much my 5 1/2 year old will be able to actually do.

Thanks so much for all of your encouragement. We will keep plugging along and enjoying the slow pace for now. She just loves to play as well, so I guess these are the years for that sort of thing!!!!!
