Children want to be helpful and are eager to become more independent. We see this whenever they insist ""I can do it myself!"" or ""Let me!"" This warm, inviting book introduces young children to age-appropriate ways they can help out: putting their toys away, getting dressed by themselves, waiting their turn, sitting still at the doctor's office, and more. 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.
