Review: Skwids

We had a foreign exchange college student come to our house one day and he was selling these books from Skwids. I do like these books. They have Ask Me About books, two books that are like dictionaries for kids, shapes, colors, letter and number books. We got 2 sticker books and posters. I did laminate the posters first, they are about 16x24 inch.


Pros: the books are big, sturdy, have bright colors and fun pictures. They also have words in both English and Spanish.


Cons: price; we went with the least expensive package and they were still extremely expensive. We did get like 18 books, 2 sticker books and posters for the price but it was the most expensive thing we’ve bought for preschool. They are in no way a curriculum but more of a supplemental tool.

Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.

Monday: books (she picks one and 1 about letters), game based on letters, 2 workbook pages (lette…

She doesn’t wake during the night or take naps because then she’ll stay up forever.
