It just helps,

This review is from: Starting School (Picture Puffin) (Paperback)
It's so difficult to explain new concepts to little ones and it helps to have visual hooks and scenarios they can relate to. This book provides all that. I knew it had all been worthwhile when on her first morning my daughter said "now you leave don't you mummy, like in my book" - and she didn't cry, because she understood that she, like all the children in the book, would be dropped off for a day of new experiences (some good, some bad) and would then be collected. Particularly good is the way in which it teaches how school is an ongoing process, day by day and term by term. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It was just perfect in vocabulary and illustration.
