Each slight easy-reader text highlights a common school-related psychological challenge but offers limited, if any, guidance. A bully excludes Clara, but a friends kindness quickly cheers her up; Dan and his classmates feel a variety of emotions (enumerated but unexplored) on their first day of school. Bright full-page photos reiterate characters' feelings. Follow-up questions encouraging personal connections are appended. Reading list. Glos.

PreSâ€”The average preschooler's learning day incorporates a vast amount of basic information, such as healthy eating, being a good friend, bus and fire safety, and more. This series introduces some of these conversations to young learners by using a brief word count, color photographs that offer visual cues, and definitions that are clear and easy to understand. A simple narrative guides readers through the topic experience while also imparting valuable lessons that tots can incorporate into their own routines. For example, in Pearl's New Tooth, a new tooth sets off a discussion on brushing and flossing teeth, visiting the dentist, and how to avoid cavities.
