Little books for big changes!
Growing up is challenging. Sometimes getting dressed, tying the shoes, acquiring table manners, sharing toys or taking turns in the park playground can be tricky for young children. But thanks to the new concertina series by Martí and Salomó, the little ones will develop good habits in a fun and positive way.
One side of the book shows good results from daily routines. The other side is a humorous view of the not-so-good results, both aimed at encouraging children to improve their habits at their own pace. Repeating a behavior or action will show kids that small steps and gradual changes can make a big difference!
Because there are always two sides of a story and there is always room for improvement, books can be read as long zigzags, displayed on a desk or hung as a garlands to decorate their rooms.
