Children want to be helpful and are eager to become more independent. We see this whenever children insist "I can do it myself!" or "Let me!" This warm, inviting book introduces young children to age-appropriate ways to help out: put their toys away, get dressed by themselves, wait their turn, sit still at the doctor's office. Written in simple words, vividly illustrated with realistic scenes that relate to children's everyday lives, You Are Helpful lets children know they are competent and capable.
