The first day of nursery is a big step for every child and parent alike. You’re full of worries and doubts, unsure of how your child will adapt, whether they’ll make friends or even eat the meals there. This anxiety is heightened as nurseries finally begin to reopen in a post-pandemic world – will your child be safe? Many parents are now asking themselves the question, “how can I prepare my little one for such a milestone in this global climate?”
Our answer: go back to basics. Combine storytelling books with eye-catching puppets to captivate your children and ready them for the world outside their cosy home.
Listen to the data
Research has shown that storytelling can provide your child with a grasp of cultural understanding, curiosity and communication – qualities that enable them to thrive outside of their family environment. Not only that, but you can also help develop your little one’s imagination through the use of tone of voice, which influences how children receive information. If you’re too harsh or sarcastic, your child will stop listening!
Prepare your little one for their teachers, their classmates, and even their class pet by using a gentle, engaging tone of voice. Luckily, educational book sets like ours here at Puppets By Post make it easy to enthral your child, baby or toddler – in the process, getting them excited for the academic world ahead.
The power of puppetry
We have an extensive range of puppet story books in stock right now at great prices to prepare your little one for that big step into nursery.
As the term “educational book sets” suggests, our books bring captivating stories right off the page – with your artful use of puppetry, your child will pick up new vocabulary, social skills and fun facts that are sure to wow their fellow nursery-goers. With prices starting as low as £5 and free delivery available if you spend more than £10 on one order, our book sets will hardly set you back as much as they’ll keep you and your little one bonding together. That’s what we call making pennies go far!
As for the exact educational book sets you can pick from our current range, we have both new and old favourites to make the journey to nursery a fun and enjoyable experience.
Check out our popular animal-based sets like Dear Zoo, Bear and Turtle and the Great Lake Race and even the heart-warming, classic spinoff The Gruffalo’s Child – sure to make your child feel more at home exploring the big, wide world. Our other sets, such as Did You See Them Too?, will introduce you and your little one to other curious characters.
