Jack and the Toddler

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
When Jack's mother tells him that a friend will be coming over, he immediately begins making plans to play all of his favorite games, but is surprised when his mother tells him that the friend who will be coming is a toddler, who cannot quite do all the same things Jack can. Though disappointed at first, Jack soon finds that there are ways to play the same games with toddlers, with a few changes here and there to make it safe, but still fun. For many children, understanding others outside of their age group can be very difficult. Changing the way you play so that it is appropriate for younger children, such as toddlers, can be frustrating for some children, especially since they are still newly exploring their own advancing stages of play as they grow and are often not ready to revisit the last. With each page alternating between text to be read by the adult and text to be read by the child, a reading partnership is established to open the door for questions and conversations which may come up about the topic. A breath of fresh air from other beginning readers which are often dull, trite stories with no interactive quality. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
