Stanley has lots of eager students at school today!
Ding, ding, ding! It’s time for school with Stanley and Hattie. Stanley reads a story to Little Woo, Sophie, and Benjamin. Outside, everyone has fun in the garden, and Stanley’s lemonade and Hattie’s lovely fruit salad are delicious snacks for lunch right before a nice little nap. Things get a little messy during art time, though . . . uh, oh!
Stanley’s School invites young readers to explore everyday classroom activities in a sweet, simple world. With bright illustrations, adorable characters, and a padded-cover format, William Bee’s Stanley series is perfect for readers transitioning from board books to picture books.
