The book touches upon a number of situations and issues important for a day in the playground, starting with a general overview “In the park”. This is followed by examples of situations in which the children are taught about co-operation: “Your turn, my turn”, “Waiting for your go” and “Sharing”. Other issues include “Being polite”, Saying sorry”, “Helping others”, “Keep it tidy” and “Staying safe.” Finally, there is a synopsis of important things to remember. Each issue is illustrated with photographs and most not only include advice but also a question which the children should answer, such as: “What would happen if everyone wanted to go down the slide at the same time?” This provides food for thought.
Well selected photographs which underline the messages clearly.
The book does not contain a story, nor is there a thread linking the different issues. It is instead a book of advice for children, written in a way that is easy to understand.
