There is one I have called Young Minds at Play...a thematic curriculum for 3-4 year olds. Its really fun. If you researched it and liked it, I would send it to you for the cost of shipping, like $4.

I also love Oak Meadow Preschool and Little Acorn Learning.

 Books:

Preschool Art (it's the process, not the product)

Mudpies to magnets

The preschoolers Busy Book 

Thinking Games for Preschoolers

 A child development is a good idea too. Something like the series  "Your ____ year old."  A lot of preschool  curriculum is really not developmentally appropriate these days. Just because a child can learn or be taught something doesn't mean it's the best time to do it.  Reading up on child development and some of the better "late than early" type authors can really be helpful.  Academics are pushed sooooo hard these days in preschool. It's refreshing to remind ourselves that this is a very new idea and children have been "just playing" through the preschool years for ages, and turned out just fine. :) This website has a lot of good articles, BestHomeschooling.org.  and some fun ideas of activities to do.
