Anna’s Friends go to Preschool
is not like any other story book for preschoolers!
It’s also a workbook. Included on each page are illustrations with text, and a colored text button with notes for mom, dad, and other caregivers explaining the actions of the children on that page based on their motivational gift. This training tool is unique. Parent’s and children alike, love it!
This 90+ page book has 4 full-color illustrated stories for your children to read: 1) Anna can be bossy; 2) A Butterfly Goes to Preschool; 3) New Friends and Lizards; and 4) The Good Fun Bible Lesson.
At the end of the book are pages written from the perspective of Anna’s Friends telling your child why they do the things they do. Here’s Anna’s page:
I’m Anna. If you think you are like me, here are some things I do that help me give God’s love away. My motivational gift is a really long word. Facilitator! Say it like this: Fa (like pa) cil (like window sill) i ( like ick) tator (like ali – gator). I plan projects!
1. I am always thinking ahead because I am a planner and make lots of notes. Remember, I told my momma to make a list of what I need for pre-school.
2. I love to quickly get to know new kids at school or church. That’s why I rushed to meet Sarah and Cayden.
3. Sometimes I boss my friends around, but not ugly like. Did you read how I told everyone to go help Jesse when he dropped his crayons? And, I told Maria to get him a tissue?
And I even told everyone where to sit. Watch for this trait in the other stories.
4. Sometimes I don’t ask my mom or dad permission before doing things I like to do. This isn’t a good idea. I like to have my own way. This isn’t cool either! Your mom will show you why.
5. It doesn’t take me long to clean up my messy room and I don’t get upset if I spill something on my clothes. It will wash out.
6. And, I like active games like jump rope, T-ball, and even hop scotch.
