As our children grow they will be introduced to situations where having a strong sense of self and the well-being of others will help them to make well thought out decisions. Each of the storybooks within the Miss Danielle’s Preschoolbuds collection are meticulously crafted to impart educational and social lessons that help children address everyday challenges – all through the experiences of each story’s fun-filled characters. When you enter the warm and nurturing world of Miss Danielle’s Preschoolbuds, you and your child will share in experiencing stories that encourage children to foster their academic skills, as well as develop their good citizenship. Each Preschoolbuds title sensitively addresses issues, challenges and concepts that are central in child development. Caring, sharing, acceptance, empathy and preparing children to exhibit kindness towards their peers and family are central themes throughout Danielle’s storybooks.
Recently, the Department of Education has embraced the importance of Character Education for students in the Elementary and Primary Grades. The Miss Danielle’s Preschoolbuds book series meets this new imperative. As an educator and author who has worked with hundreds of families and children, Danielle Lindner firmly believes that character education should begin in the preschool years – and not wait for elementary school to apply this method of study to build character and self-confidence. Children as young as 18 months begin to learn about the world around them, gain a sense of self and learn how they and their actions fit into this complex world we live in. Giving young children a fun, engaging, educational and exciting way to learn about themselves, the world and others is the mission of Miss Danielle’s Preschoolbuds – and we are delighted to have you and yours join with us.

Tango: The Little Turtle Who Was Afraid to Go to School
Separating from a parent can be very difficult for a little one and parent, especially when it’s time for the first day of school. Tango explores the feelings that both parent and child have during the first days of preschool and explains what happens during each of their days, so that it’s easy for a child to understand why they are in school, what fun they will have, what they will learn, that they are safe, and most important, that mom or dad will be back at the end of each day. It also acknowledged the fact that separation anxiety is not just something that a child goes through. Separation anxiety in almost all cases involved the parents feelings as well.
Arabelle: The little bat with the most wonderful glasses
Children often struggle with feelings of insecurity at some point in their childhood. When children feel that there is something about them that makes them “different” from the others in their peer group, they often express fear, sadness and anger. Some children are afraid that they are too short, too tall or just don’t fit in. One of the most important things we can teach our children is that our differences make us special. In Arabelle, The bat with the most wonderful pink glasses, Arabelle struggles with the idea that if she has to wear glasses, she will not be the same as her friends and they will taunt and tease her. She quickly learns that we are all different in our own special way, and, in fact, having new pink glasses proves to be absolutely wonderful!
