PreS-K—These simple, straightforward guides are a boon to parents, daycare providers, and nursery school teachers, gently reinforcing best practices and reassuring toddlers and preschoolers that they are in control of their bodies and their health. The rhyming texts and appealing art contribute to the positive and affirming messages. The first title, now available in English and in Spanish, explains how and why to use the potty and encourages kids with practical advice to try and to succeed. The second title explains what noses do and why it's important to use tissues: "Blow. Toss./Wash and dry./Tell those germs good-bye." Both books offer tips for parents and caregivers at the end. An excellent series.
