The ‘All by myself’ series of board books from Wayland, as the name suggests, is designed to nurture young children’s ‘growing sense of pride and independence’ - and it does this very usefully indeed. As well as getting oneself dressed, topics covered in these bright, engaging and interactive board books include personal hygiene and table manners; essentially, the kinds of skills that are not always given as much of a ‘star billing’ by parents as early literacy and numeracy - but are immeasurably valuable in terms of preparing children for the shift from nursery or pre-school into reception and beyond. With sharp, diverse and inclusive photography, lively rhyming couplets and plenty of supplementary questions, there’s plenty to talk about.
