All About Danny Lap Book is a larger, lap-sized version of the student favorite, All About Danny, and is the perfect size for reading aloud to children who are not yet reading on their own. Danny describes all of the things that make him Danny – from his bed in his house, to his friends and favorite person.
All About Danny Lap Book is part of the Early Childhood Unit 1 Kit: All About Me. This unit provides an opportunity for young students to better understand themselves and build strong self-esteem as they experience physical growth and their first efforts at self-sufficiency and becoming an individual. Each book’s corresponding lesson plan encourages self-awareness by helping students compare what is alike, and what is different, between them and their peers. Using hands-on activities, the students will create their own “All About Me” book to share with classmates and families.
Each themed unit consists of six lap-sized (8.5 x 8.5″) books and a coordinating set of detailed, hands-on lesson plans tailored to teach the principles demonstrated in the books. Unit 1 Kit: All About Me comes with Danny the Dog Puppet to use during classroom story times, or just for fun!
The lap-sized books may also be purchased individually and are perfect for small group reading with students.

Early Emergent Readers
Early Emergent readers benefit from books about familiar topics that use carefully controlled text and repeated vocabulary. Illustrations are important keys to readers at this level, supporting the decoding of new words. Early Emergent readers are still building a vocabulary of high-frequency words. Having a large vocabulary of frequently used words enables reading that is more fluent and sounds like natural speaking language.
