Designed for Reading Aloud and Having Fun Doing It

Pretty Please Press books are designed to be read aloud to students in Kindergarten through Third Grade. The books will introduce children to new words and concepts, stimulate conversation, and present opportunities to ask open-ended, thought provoking questions like "What would you do in that situation?"

As every elementary teacher knows, reading aloud to young children is one of the best ways to enrich their vocabulary and foster a love of books. Pretty Please Press books offer lively text and colorful illustrations. They deal with subjects that kids may know about, or may want to learn about: Ballet, Sisters who argue-a lot!, Creatures from Outer Space, and Tae Kwon Do.
