Social Concepts for Toddlers

Summary:

There are only certain things we hit, bite and push … and our friends aren't among them.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The illustrations and concepts are simple. The alternative objects are logical and well within the every-day environment of all toddlers.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, really. If you don't have a dog or siblings and you think this will confuse your child, you can change the names (neighbor's pet, friends).


Little Kid Reaction

S/He loved the question and the lift-the-flap to find the answer. We read it nearly a dozen times at the first few sittings, and it was a must-read book for several weeks.

Parent Reaction

As simple and repetitive as it is, the book was exactly what we needed to help break some bad habits. Somehow reading and re-reading the book didn't sound like a broken record to her.

Type of Book:
The book uses a simple question and answer format to help emphasize proper social behavior for toddlers.
Educational Themes:

The goal of this book is to help parents teach their kids proper social behavior.

Reading Level:
1.8
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 8
Recommended Age To Read Together:
0 to 4
Age of child:
Started reading with 2-year-old child.
Purchase Recommendation:
This one could go either way. It is a terrific book to have on hand, and if you have more than one child, you'll wear it out!
