Board Book

This board book explores opposites. The use of ink drawings that are simplistic yet colorful enhance the story by allowing for the concept of opposites to be easily recognizable to young readers but also allowing for further explanation for older children.

Picture Book
High on energy and imagination, this ode to self-esteem encourages kids to appreciate everything about themselves—inside and out. Messy hair? Beaver breath? So what! Here's a little girl who knows what really matters.

Did you know? 

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) found that children who were read to frequently are also more likely to: count to 20, or higher than those who were not (60% vs. 44%), write their own names (54% vs. 40%), read or pretend to read (77% vs. 57%)
Literacy All Around Us 
Tips to turn everyday moments into learning moments.  

Build your child's language skills by asking them questions about their day.
Children benefit from reading their favorite story over and over. Mix it up! Ask your child to read the story to you, or ask them to describe what's happening in the pictures. It's not always important to read every word in a book - it's more important to spend quality time together.
