Where can I find workbooks?

my dd is turning 3 in two months, and I'm wanting to look into getting her started on some workbooks where she can learn slot of the things she would normally learn with a preschool program..she's a very bright little girl and knows her colors (like pink blue green purple red orange yellow but gets a little confused with brown black and white)..and is starting to recognize some letters of the alphabet (like "e"), and can recognize her numbers when we show her how many on our hands (under 10 of course)..she can count to 15 unassisted and can finish to 30 with a little help..she knows get name and how old she is along with animals and their sounds (we have a ton of apps on our phones to help her with animal matching (find the sheep and she can find it) and so on that she loves)..but where can I find simple workbooks to get her started on shape recognition and basic writing skills?..I'm not sure if I should even touch on reading yet..and how would I if I decide to?..she loves telling stories and having books read to her, and can sit and tell you about a simple book that we just read (like a feel and learn book, about the deers nose, the soft fur of the lamb, the perch that the reckon was climbing on) things like that..sorry to go on and on, but I feel bad that she just plays all day she needs some sort of structure other than just counting her blocks and babies and so on.

  • I am a bit of an educational toy/book/dvd junkie because I am more than willing to teach my kid what he wants but I sort of need these things as crutches to guide me through the teaching process. I have tested a great deal of them now I have found some great (and cheap) ones on I have also found a few good ones at the local grocery store. I have definitely found that in most cases price doesn't indicate quality The one exception--Brainquest. They are really pricey in comparison to other stuff but I reallly have great things to say about the brain quest series of books and activities. I don't know if you are a tv or not tv person but I use shows like Curious George, WordWorld and Superwhy to springboard some learning stuff outside of what is in a workbook and the shows have on line activities and worksheets free to get them started. My son loves doing workbooks but I find he learns more from hands on stuff.
