Help young children learn social skills and get ready for a successful start to school with this charming alphabet book.

C is for cooperate. G is for grow. P is for play! This friendly and reassuring alphabet book helps young children (and those who care for them) consider, explore, and discuss a wide range of skills related to school readiness. Kids preparing for kindergarten or preK will learn social skills from A to Z, building or reinforcing their knowledge of the alphabet at the same time. Charming art brings the skills to life with encouraging scenes of fun and learning in the classroom, on the playground, and more. A special section for adults presents ideas for helping children get ready for this big change and have a successful start to school.
Celeste Delaney grew up in New Zealand, where much of life is lived outdoors. As a child she loved playing at the beach, reading, playing piano, writing stories, and drawing. She left New Zealand after earning a degree in occupational therapy and has since lived and worked in many countries including the United States, India, Malaysia, China, and Mexico. Celeste enjoys traveling, teaching, art projects, and writing. She works as an occupational therapist with children, which challenges her to be patient and flexible and rewards her with smiles, hugs, and the joy of seeing children grow and learn. Celeste lives near Portland, Oregon, with her husband Chris.
Stephanie Fizer Coleman is an illustrator and a designer whose love of nature inspires much of her art. After getting a degree in history, she found her true passion in illustration. She enjoys experimenting with patterns, textures, and brilliant colors in her work. Stephanie lives in West Virginia with her husband and two silly dogs. When she’s not drawing, she can be found puttering around the garden, trying out new vegan recipes in the kitchen, or curled up with a good book and a cup of tea.
