Ralph’s First Day of School: A Story That Instructs - Terry Simons
This beautiful book is a must-have for every child’s library. The story is exciting and entertaining and the gorgeous, full-colour illustrations are captivating. But that’s not all! This “train-along-tale” is truly unique. While it stands alone as a storybook, Ralph’s First Day also includes simple training instructions so that the family dog (if you have one) can be taught to act out parts of the story.

Ralph's First Day of School
  The Love of Tollers - Douglas Coldwell
