School Library JournalPreS-Gr 2—These books examine common, often scary events in children's lives and guide readers through them step-by-step. The authors discuss the who, what, and why of each experience, from what to pack for a sleepover to introductions to new faces to what happens before and during a flight. Much of what makes children uneasy about these events is the promise of change, so the series' true strength is in discussing the differences introduced by each event-new foods one might eat at a friend's house, less attention from mom and dad, and so on. By confronting these fears head-on, children will feel "in the know" and be prepared to experience these firsts. The text—two sentences per page in a large font and placed on white space—is accompanied by large color photos of children, families, and adults of a variety of ethnic backgrounds. Each volume includes boldface vocabulary words, a picture glossary, and dos and don'ts. Must-haves for public and elementary school libraries.—Rebecca Dash Donsky, New York Public Library
