Mama's Little Book of Tricks is definitely worth getting for mama! I am a stay at home mom with two young (one and three year old) girls and this has been wonderful for me to be able to pick up and find a fresh idea to bring into our day. In my "past" life I was an elementary teacher and some of the things would have even worked in my classroom. The book is composed of little entries that are themed with activities and trivia - for example: 7 fun things to do with paper cups, how to whistle with an acorn top, how to mark a trail (while hiking), Clever mama facts about dinosaurs, mummys and planets. plus much more! This is a great book for keeping in the car, purse or on the kitchen counter.
