Well-known for her tools and strategies for self-esteem development, she was a national conference presenter and a frequent guest on TV and radio. Sally, who grew up in White Plains, NY, has Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Cornell University and a Ph.D. from the University of Miami. </span><span data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p></div><div><h3><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">What prompted you to write this book?  </span> </h3><p><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">This book represents the culmination of years of study and had been in the works for a long time. After a recent delay I finally got back to it and finished it up quickly. Now it is my pleasure to have this easy-to-follow user-friendly guidance available for parents.</span><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p></div><div><h3><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">What type of research did you do to write your book? </span> </h3><p><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">I did the main research many years ago while getting my doctorate in early childhood education. That is when I learned about the five areas of development—cognitive, motor, social, language and self-esteem and how important they are for young children. Then while working as a professor of education, I collected even more information including having the opportunity to try out </span><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">many different kinds of activities. Last, when writing the book, the editor requested referencing studies to back up each of the 200 suggested activities, and then I provided those. Now there is a  well-researched resource for parents and their infants, toddlers and two-year-olds to enjoy together. </span><span data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p></div><div><h3><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">Are you writing anything now?

I started that as a </span><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">first grade teacher. However, the big change came when my daughter was born with a developmental delay. Then I used my first grade teaching background to figure out how to teach babies. In the end it was her success with learning the colors, letters, numbers, shapes and reading by the time she was two that attracted the attention of many parents and eventually led to my becoming a parenting specialist focusing on the first three years. </span><span data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></p></div><div><h3><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">Do you use your local library?  If so, which library is it and what do you do there?</span> </h3><p><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">I used to use my local library to run a Scrabble group. We met monthly at the one in Fountain Hills.</span><span data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> ​</span></p></div></div>
