Who’s going to mend these broken toys? Which tools will we need? And when they’re fixed, where shall we keep them? Helping with real tasks is a natural progression from pretend play, and is a crucial stage in a child’s development. Achieving a shared goal encourages a sense of responsibility, and develops many skills useful in later life. Simple conversational text and lively illustrations are carefully designed to encourage further dialogue between reader and child.
Helping Hands series “Birkett's bright, line and color illustrations focus on the child and her contributions, evoking Aliki in line and mood. The narration’s rapid fire enthusiasm is appealing.”
