Picture Books Library < Skills
Picture books that encourage young children to develop important life skills such as getting dressed for themselves, learning to swim, learning to use the potty or toilet, and washing themselves.
Inquisitive children who love to help will engage with Edie. They will be able to relate to her, and understands what she is doing. Furthermore, readers can be encouraged to look closely at the pictures, to see how any help Edie is giving might be received, and to think of ways in which their own helping strategies might be improved. This book affectionately explains a child’s thought processes, and reminds the adult reader that perhaps what might sometimes be seen as “naughtiness” is often just a small person’s way of helping.
