The Buttons Family: First Day at Playschool

By Vivian French

Illustrated by Sue Heap

One in a series of six brilliant new first experiences books about the Buttons family.

It’s Cherry’s first day at playschool and she’s feeling a bit nervous. Dad helps her to settle her in and she ends up making some new friends and having lots of fun. Charming, funny picture books with gentle, non-didactic messages, the Buttons family will give children the reassurance they need to take their first steps in the world – whether it’s going to the doctor, buying new shoes, visiting the dentist, starting school, staying the night at Gran’s, or having a new babysitter for the first time.
