Stepping Stories™ are rooted in well-researched theories of child development. Each story is personalized, casting the child as the hero. Toddlers are egocentric, thriving on repetition and knowing what comes next. Stepping Stories® are effective because they speak to toddlers on their level. The text and illustrations are simple, direct and designed to be seen and heard over and over again. When children understand the change that is coming, they gain mastery over what is expected. The result is that they feel confident, excited, and ready for their next developmental step!
