SLJ Review of First Routines

From breakfast to bedtime, these daily activities that children go through are explained with easy to ­understand sentences and photographs of children taking charge of their actions.

For early readers who are starting to develop their vocabulary, the task specific words highlighted in the text can help build their language skills around things that they accomplish everyday. Parents and caregivers can relate and use the images to illustrate the normality of routines in children’s everyday lives. ­

VERDICT: This is a great addition for preschools and families looking to show healthy routines for children to follow from modeled easy exercises to healthy eating at home.
