“Mom,” Koby said, “I worry all day.
I worry at school, I worry at play.
I want to stop worrying.
I want to stop now.
But I’m worried because I just don’t know how”
That quote is from a book for Preschool, Pre-K, or Kindergarten children written by Danielle R. Lindner. I read three of her delightful books and one lucky KLY follower is going to win them!
From the author’s website: “Danielle Lindner, is an educator, children’s book author, award winning woman entrepreneur and visionary, changing the landscape for early childhood education. One of her first projects she embarked on to create disruption in the current fields of early childhood education was to create The London Day School®. The London Day School sets a new level in preschool education, providing an enriching, engaging and challenging environment for growing children. Danielle designed London Day School to address the whole child, combining essential academic skills with a focus on social and emotional development. Danielle then applied her deep experience as an educator, skills as a business woman and talents as a noted children’s author to develop Miss Danielle’s Preschoolbuds book series. The books were created to address growing social and emotional issues affecting young children and focus on building emotional and social I.Q.”
I would love to have had these books when my daughter was in preschool and I’m hoping Ms. Lindner will branch out and write books addressing the social and emotional development of tweens, hint-hint. When little ones leave home and move into the world of school there are so many new and exciting things for them to learn. But there are also challenges. These three books use characters (a bat, a kangaroo, and a bee) facing some challenges your child might be facing.
When my daughter got glasses for the first time, I looked for books that would talk about the experience. I would love to have had “Arabelle, The bat with the most wonderful pink glasses”. Arabelle finds out that glasses not only help her navigate her world but they also are a novelty that make her different – in a good way! Wonderful lesson. And because Arabelle is a bat, and not a little girl, it isn’t quite as direct which might put off a child.
The illustrations in the books are colorful, filling the entire page with bright fun. I especially liked that the eyes of all the characters are oversized and truly communicate their feelings.
Enter to win these three books, in the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!
- Arabelle, The bat with the most wonderful pink glasses
- Koby, The little blue kangaroo who worried all day
- Betsie Bee, The little bee who learned how to share and care in preschool
