Synopsis

Big Berry by Dan Yaccarino

Big Berry is a book about gratitude and reinforces that old preschool adage that you get what you get and you don't get upset. It's a perfect board board for kids who get angry when they don't get what they want. Parents and kids know Dan Yaccarino from his prodigious career in children's entertainment, which includes over three dozen books and three hit television shows: Oswald, The Backyardigans and the Emmy winning Willa's Wild Life. Now the ALA and Parent's Choice Award winning author and illustrator has created three brand new board books perfect to get every preschool kid ready for preschool. Meet Bink, Glub-Glub and Clyde - three friends and residents of Happyland. Each book in the series follows their adventures and illustrates one of three key emotional concepts - worry, gratitude and sharing to help children with their social and emotional development and ready them for preschool. They are the perfect parables: engaging, entertaining and never smug or sanctimonious.
