The book is a life saver for all those parents who want to maximise family time with little or no expenditure.
There are numerous activities that can be utilised for different situations. Critics might say that many have been out in the public domain. I can only say that this book does not claim to be the only one of its kind. In fact, many of its suggestions and recommendations are valid and relevant. What really stands out is the way in which suggestions have been given.
Amanda is neither preachy nor rude when she shares her concerns about families not spending much time together. The language is simple, categorization of activities is well-laid out and content coverage is good. The activities are childfriendly and interesting. There are no jerks and jumps in the writing. The writer has compiled a beautiful collection that can be used to enhance family ties and make the bonds stronger without creating a hole in the pockets.
To sum up, if you are looking for a guide to start or continue strengthening family bonds or invest in quality family time by being frugal this is it. A must keep for inspirations.
P.S - Thank you Amanda for the wonderful ideas. I loved the book. My review is my honest opinion after reading the book.
