This month Debi and Elissa are sharing some ideas on Summer Survival with preschoolers. Our "no fail idea" - in our opinion - is preparation and we will give suggestions on how to put together a Summer Survival Bag that is kept in the car ready for stops in a park or unplanned long waits in a doctor’s office. No need to purchase new apps or games - just a little creative thinking on your part. This Productive Play will focus on ways to use the time in the car going to and from activities, going on long car trips, or waiting for a sibling to finish up a soccer practice as fun learning opportunities.
Debi Dutton and Elissa Sungar are co-founders of If Not You Who.org - a free website geared to make sure your child is ready for kindergarten. With over 300 activities for making your playtime productive, these two educators make learning time with your kids playful.
Join us for Productive Play on May 20th at 10amPT/1pmET and anytime in archive. Today's show is sponsored by Safety Bags, LLC and Everything Family.net. Meet them and all our sponsors in our Mompreneur Marketplace.

Yonight's guest is Elissa Daye, the author of Crushed. It's book 1 in the Press Legacy Series.
Ever since childhood, I have enjoyed reading stories as an escape from life. When I was a teenager I started to write my own stories that kept me entertained whenever I ran out of books to read. When I was accepted into Illinois Summer School for the Arts in my Junior year of High School, I knew I wanted to become a writer. I graduated from Illinois State University in December 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and began my teaching career, hoping to find moments to write in my free time.
After seven years of teaching, I decided to focus on my writing and made the decision to put my teaching years behind me so that I could create the stories I had always dreamed of. I am now happily married and a stay at home mom. I try my best to master the art of multitasking to get everything accomplished and write in any spare moment I can find.

I am a first generation American-Nigerian. I speak multiple Nigerian dialects and multiple accents.
Born in Washington DC, I have lived equally in the US and Lagos Nigeria which has led to me having an interesting view and sense of humor about life. I often feel like a man born of two different worlds because of the cultural differences. It’s a balancing act like no other, having to adapt to both cultures simultaneously which can be challenging, because although I have had the desire to entertain and act this profession is not something readily embraced in the Nigerian cultural because it’s not considered a professional line of work. Nigerian parents command and I quote “READ YOUR BOOKS”, “GO TO COLLEGE” so that you can become a Doctor, Lawyer, or Engineer NOT Actor.
So I followed my parent’s instruction and migrated back to the United States to attend college at Seton Hall University where I majored in Criminal Justice and Political Science. Currently my day job is a Senior Business Systems Analyst. It is during my adult years I have been able resurrect my desire to be an entertainer and actor. I’ve always had a love for movies and with my family’s encouragement it ignited my creative juices which led to pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. In 2011 I began taking acting and voice over training with The Actors Scene in Buford GA. My intuition regarding my acting ability became evident because in October 2014 I signed with an agent. Today I am proudly represented by TDH Talent Unlimited.
Some other interesting things about me:
My favorite past time is to spend time with my lovely wife and daughter watching our favorite movies.
