One of the key questions on parents’ minds these days is whether they have to worry about the content of their early readers’ books. With Janette Oke’s Animal Friends, those worries disappear. These are titles suitable for all young children that teach valuable lessons and do it in a fun, safe way. Colorful and featuring charming illustrations, each title features a precocious animal who uncovers important instruction on growing up—whether learning the value of family, the reasons to obey, or the importance of being yourself. The easy-to-read chapters also make the books invaluable tools for teaching little ones to read. Recommended for ages 6 to 10.
