The Playdate Pals series is designed to teach children about good behaviors. Each story focuses and explores on one particular behavior. Playdate Pals Hamster Learns to Help focuses on the importance of helping others. The stories are written in clear, simple text, and the beautiful illustrations will keep children engaged and entertained as they read. At the back of each book, there are questions about the story. This gives adults an opportunity to discuss and build upon the issues presented in each book.
