What’s in Stanley’s toy box? Everyone’s favorite hard-working hamster Stanley teams with his community of rodent friends to introduce young readers to basic toy and play concepts.
★ “With a cheerful, observant voice, Bee models different social interactions, like apologizing, for children to imitate. Simple, clear-cut characters and detailed objects are easily identifiable in their bold, unfiltered colors.” —School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
Join Stanley at the park where he, Little Woo, and friends explore and play with all the toys in Stanley’s toy box. They skip rope, bounce bouncy balls, sail toy boats, and fly kites. But what else is in Stanley’s toy box?
An early introduction to toy vocabulary, object identification, and the concept of play, Stanley’s Toy Box will appeal to Stanley’s youngest fans and toy lovers.
The sturdy Stanley board book series will appeal to toddlers, preschoolers, and fans of Lucy Cousins’ Maisy. It’s a great stepping-stone to William Bee’s beloved series of padded picture books featuring Stanley and his rodent friends as they explore jobs and careers, vehicles, daily routines, and what it means to be part of a community.
