Everything I Need to Know Before I'm Five
Everything I Need to Know Before I’m Five
by Valorie Fisher
Schwartz & Wade Books, 2011, unpaged. Picture Book.
If ever there was a perfect preschool concept picture book, this is it. Counting, opposites, shapes, colors, weather, and the alphabet—this book covers all the basics a preschooler needs to learn before kindergarten. It presents them in a simple and fun format that will capture any child’s imagination. All the concepts are presented in photographs of toys set up in miniature scenes reminiscent of the I Spy books. Your child won’t just learn how to recognize the numbers; they can also count all the fun objects that go along with it. The Alphabet is presented not just in uppercase letters, but in lower case ones as well. In every detail, this delightful picture book goes far beyond the mark. Make sure to check it out for your preschooler!
