Milestones such as starting day care, using the toilet or moving to a big bed are life events that can be taken for granted.
For toddlers, preschool children and their parents, these achievements can seem monumental in scale.
As a parent or caregiver we want our children to make these transitions easily and with not too much stress and fuss! These books help children to feel more at ease to tackle their milestones.
Once they read or have the books read to them they seem to be much happier and willing to make these changes. With the characters being preschoolers the children have two characters they can relate to directly through their own journey growing up.
The series of five books for children is centered on the adventures of two preschool aged characters, Sophia and Mason, and cover several of the early milestones faced by children aged 0 to five years of age.
The books are titled:
- Mason’s First Day at Day Care
- Sophia Moves into a Big Bed
- Sophia’s First Visit to the Dentist
- Mason’s First Day at School
- Sophia/Mason Learns to Use the Toilet
