Stories for children ages 30 months and up about special days and helping others -- with a special focus on the child's world.
That these books are so seemingly simple is just right for the kindergarten and under set. Katie and Kevin's activities (helping around the house, for instance) are perfect for young children: they mirror their world as they take steps to be independent and "do it" themselves. Perhaps these stories could be used to prompt kids to think about and share what they would do to help their teacher, neighbor, friend, sister/brother, grandparent? Or what they would like to do if they had special time with a special someone?
