A new series, these have primer like content. The format is large type on big pages with pictures, in black and white and full color or two-tones, to amplify the short simple texts, which impart basic information about the topic in question. Each book is centered around the doings of a little boy either with his uncle or a neighborhood friend from whom he picks up essentials and the will to learn. Convenient content material with a story element to carry reader interest. All firmly side-sewn.
