Item Description...
What is Before Five In A Row? Let's begin with what it isn't. It isn't a curriculum. Neither is it an aggressive, academic training regimen designed to turn your pre-schooler into a scholastic super-achiever. It is a rich treasury of creative ideas designed to help you gently, consistently prepare your children for the life-long adventure of learning. For children ages two to four, Before Five In A Row is better than a curriculum!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Resource for Busy Mom  May 20, 2008
I've just started using Before Five in a Row with my three-year-old. I am so grateful for Jane's thoughtful and creative ideas to incorporate into each book lesson. While I consider myself a creative person, and well-educated, I am not trained in child development, nor do I have much teaching experience. What's more, I do not have countless hours to brainstorm creative ways to engage my child with storybooks (let alone researching which 'classic' storybooks would be most suitable). Jane has concisely done all of this for me, in a very organized and appropriate manner.
no planning required  May 17, 2008
While some reviewers correctly note that most of the ideas in B4FIAR would be easy to think up for a creative parent, the benefit of the guide book is that there is NO planning required! Simply choose a book from the table of contents, read the guide and go. Libraries carry these classic books, though we have purchased most of them over the years.

For busy out-of-home-working parents who what to be able to have a special book time with their little one without much planning, and for busy families with lots of children, this guide saves valuable time which is better spent WITH the child and rather than researching FOR the child!

Too Many Books Out of Print  Jul 22, 2007
This is a great resource if you are interested in sharing good books with your children. My only disappointment (and a rather large disappointment at that) is that several of the titles are out of print--Yellow Ball, My Blue Boat, The Quiet Way Home, The Red Carpet, and Jenny's Surprise Summer. Five out of twenty-four titles! Almost one-fourth of the stories are available for purchase, but only if you want to pay $20-$60 each! I feel that if BFIAR was updated to include all books that are in print (maximum of one to two that are not), it would be worth the full price. As it is, it's only worth 3/4 of the price.
Need Ideas for Taking Time to Enjoy your Child?  Feb 21, 2007
This is a wonderful resource. I only wish it were twice as long. I have been using it for 6 months now with my 2-3 year old and 4-5 year old. Upon first glance, this book could really seem useless to the untrained eye. It could also turn out bad if the mother were using it with a two year old not ready yet for discussion! I tried this book on my son when he was only two and he hated it! He'd rather just read and play with his trucks. But I picked it up again when he was four and my younger daughter was 2 and it has been a wonderful treasury. This is the time in my life when life stops, the clock is turned off, the academic meters are shut down, and my children and I just enjoy one another. This book is a treasure and a secret. My older son loves to go on rabbit trailes, and this is the time that we take to just talk about all the things that interest us. My daughter loves the cuddling, and the questions that are on her level. She is so proud to answer a question. The books are all God-honoring, healthy, interesting books. And- we really have learned a lot. We have noticed things about books that we did not used to we are learning to really get inside a book, and observe and watch all the gifts that God has given the authors and illustrators. And most of all we really do feel closer because of it. I highly recommend this book. Use it alongside your "academics" if you are too goals-oriented like me, to drop formal academics all together. It does not have to be "all or nothing." Enjoy!
A disappointment...skip this one  Sep 17, 2006
I have both "Five in a Row" (for older kids) and "Before Five in a Row", which is designed for younger kids ages 2-4. While "Five in a Row" is not bad, "Before Five in a Row" is not worth it. Many of the children's books (at least 7 or 8) are out of print and a few are nearly impossible to obtain, even at our public library. As others have pointed out, the suggested activities are mostly common-sense and rather unimaginative anyway. Also, the "Five in a Row" series has an evangelical Christian focus, which may not be appropriate for everyone.
Some better alternatives for preschool children include "Ready for Reading" by Ashley Bishop and "Peak with Books" by Marjorie Nelsen. These books are non-sectarian and use classic children's books that are more readily available than the titles suggested in "Before Five in a Row."
