A young boy who really likes pickles wants to grow pickles in his garden, but he is surprised by what he discovers – there are no bread and butter pickle plants or dill pickle trees. He learns a lot as he and his mom transform seeds from the store into yummy pickles to enjoy on everything from hot dogs to ice cream. Well, maybe not ice cream!

It is an informative and educational book for all children and is a must-have in all school and children’s libraries.”

Jobs of a Preschooler 

AVAILABLE as a softcover edition on Amazon, barnesandnoble.com, and on Bookshop (to support independent bookstores).

There are many jobs a parent may have throughout his or her day. A parent may be a chef (someone has to make the meals to eat), a teacher (learning doesn’t happen only at school), and a driver (for all those places where walking would take way too long). But parents aren’t the only ones with these jobs – preschoolers may do them, too! Join a busy preschooler as she experiences many jobs throughout her day. Is it work, or is it play?

Free coloring pages and a list of 20 inexpensive, fun activities to do with your preschooler that go along with this book can be found on Fun Extras.

“The experiences of the preschooler in the story and her busy schedule will take young readers into a world brimming with different types of activities and jobs and, though tiring, it speaks about the fun they have while doing these jobs.

The story is engaging and interesting and children will be able to relate to the activities of the preschooler in the story. The illustrations make the concept clear and vivid, and give the story life and movement. It is a good bedtime storybook that parents can read out to their kids. Teachers and educators can use it for interactive sessions in classrooms to speak about the activities that can keep a preschooler engaged, active, and happy so that they are busy and occupied doing fun things. The preschooler in the book also shows how tiring a day can be with all these jobs, though it is fun doing them. It is a good book for educators and parents, as it gives them ideas on how to keep children busy and occupied doing things that are informative, interactive, fun, and educational.”
