Each slight easy-reader text follows a focal character step-by-step through the mechanics of staying safe during a common school procedure. Amanda lines up quietly and follows planned routes during a fire drill; Peter holds the handrail as he boards the bus. Bright, relevant stock photos break up the useful if unengaging narratives. 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.
