Starting day care, using the toilet or moving to a big bed are life events that can be taken for granted. For toddlers, preschool children and their parents, these achievements can seem monumental in scale.
The series of five books is centred on the adventures of two preschool ...aged characters, Sophia and Mason, and cover several of the early milestones faced by children aged two to five years of age.
The books are titled: Mason's First Day at Day Care; Sophia Moves into a Big Bed; Sophia's First Visit to the Dentist; Mason's First Day at School and Sophia/Mason Learns to Use the Loo.
"The world can be an awe-inspiring yet scary place for toddlers and preschoolers. They face a lot of challenges as part of growing up and until you become a parent, or work with young children, it is not something that you give a lot of thought to. This series of books came about as a means of explaining these milestones to our own children in a fun way so that they become more comfortable with these steps. With Sophia and Mason, preschoolers have two characters they can relate to directly through their own journey growing up.Read more
