Transition Story Books are a series of books for young children undergoing transitions, for example starting school, having new siblings, moving house and making new friends. The aim of these books are to provide children with a comical way of approaching an upcoming transition which will ease their mind about the changes they are about to encounter. The books also contain subjects such as choosing to see things in a positive way and not focusing on negative feelings. Illustrations are superimposed on to photographic backgrounds, so the books contain real images of inside schools, shops, hospitals and homes. This will help children to identify with the locations in the stories as similar to places where they have been themselves.
A missed bus, a buggy wheel falling off, what more could happen to make this child late for school?! A delightful tale of a catastrophic school run, narrated in rhyming couplets. Will he get to school on time . . . ?
