Our new imprint features engaging, high-quality picture books for the children you care for and teach. Redleaf Lane books are unique because they take place in group-care settings and reflect the same developmentally appropriate practices and research-based standards that all Redleaf Press books are known for. This first collection of Redleaf Lane books features loveable characters facing situations that the children you care for each day might experience, too—from the challenge of entering play with other children to the separation anxiety they sometimes feel when apart from a parent. These charming stories are fun to read and beautifully illustrated—and sure to become early childhood favorites. Each book contains a page of information to help you connect the stories to children’s experiences. Age focus: 3–6. Hardcover, 32 pgs. each. Available November 2013. NEW! Mama’s Gloves NEW!
