Growing Up Just Got Easier...
With the help of Angus, the lovable Answer Dog, best-selling author Heidi Murkoff extends a hand to children and parents as they tackle life's first experiences together.
It's hard to believe, but your child's starting preschool. Even if it's just for a couple of hours two or three days a week, it seems such a big step for someone in such little sneakers. Not to worry -- we're here to help prepare both of you for that step. We'll answer your child's questions about what preschool is like, what preschoolers do, who teachers are, and how they help to make preschool such a fun and special place -- so that the first day of preschool will be a day you'll both look forward to.
Heidi and Angus

Ages 2-5. Written by a coauthor of the classic What to Expect When You're Expecting (1984), this is the latest in the What to Expect Kids series, featuring Angus, the lovable advice dog. The "Q-and-A" format that is so successful in the series' other titles works well once again as Angus reassuringly answers such questions as "What will my classroom look like?" "Will my mommy or daddy stay with me?" "What happens at circle time?" and "Who will I play with?" Each page features an activity or idea to help prepare children for their new experience: "Look around your room," for example. "Do you see some of the things you'll see in your classroom?" Also provided is advice for parents on how to ready themselves for this big milestone. Friendly watercolor illustrations depict children having lots of fun at school. A must-have guide.
