Description

Here in one big lap book is everything a child AND his or her parent needs to know before the first day of preschool! The stories, poems, and activities involve not only basic early learning concepts--letters and early phonics, numbers and counting, shapes, colors, opposites, etc.--but also address important aspects of socialization--making friends, sharing, taking turns, cooperating, getting dressed, going to the potty, saying good-bye without tears. And for the parent, who is often as anxious about preschool as the child, the author has included extensive Notes to the Parent showing how to best use each entry in the book. Authoritative and brimming with bright, lively illustrations, this book makes getting ready for preschool a happy adventure!
