Interest in this classic series has never diminished since the six books were first
published in the years between 1982 and 1986.
Though each book has received loving attention to its text and illustrations,
no changes have been made to the unique and effective story format developed by
Elizabeth Crary. Children and adults alike will appreciate the improved appearance
that makes these books easier and more fun to use.
This series helps preschool and elementary school-aged children begin to learn
problem-solving skills. Each book introduces a specific problem familiar to most
children and then prompts the child to consider alternative solutions. These books
encourage critical thinking and exploration of ideas within a familiar situation.
An introduction explains the way in which these books may be used, and provides
helpful tips to assist you in drawing your child out.
