Overview

This innovative series grew out of a desire to provide all children with the opportunity to see themselves within the books they are reading and identify with the children and families they see. The diversity of today’s families is clearly captured. The simple text and engaging photographs explore the relationship between very young children and their environment. In this book, each page explores a new possibility for an imagination engaged in a game of pretend. Children from various backgrounds pretend to be a mom, a dad, a doctor and patient, restaurant diners, and heroes being pursued by a dragon! Children can build an airplane and escape into the clouds on the wings of “let’s pretend.” If ever a board book reflected the world of a preschool child, this is it: real children whose imaginations reach for the sky.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS Two board books designed to encourage conversations between young children and their parents or caregivers. Full-color photographs depict youngsters of different ages and from diverse backgrounds participating in a variety of familiar activities. Happy Birthday consists of different ways of celebrating children's birthdays, ending with the question, "What do you like to do for your birthday?" In Let's Pretend, children engage in creative play, taking on the roles of parents, doctors, cooks, monsters, firemen, and princesses. Each page contains one clear and simple sentence or question that lends itself to discussion. Worthwhile contributions to the growing number of board books available for young children.
