While trying to find something fun to do like his other friends, Little Pencil is upset because he feels upset because he find something to do. When he discovers a new set of friends who give him a purpose, he feels appreciated and loved.
I love books created by educators. They find a great way to introduce important techniques that children can apply through creative storytelling that they can relate to. I love the illustrations showing the emotions from the characters. You not only see what they do but learn their functions. This is wonderful when we see Little Pencil with his friends because it teaches your child about gripping a pencil with the introduction to writing. There is also a wonderful workbook that you can get to accompany that you will find resourceful and informative.
