It’s another busy day at Stanley’s Diner!
“Stanley’s new story line of working in the kitchen will appeal to any preschooler who plays house or pretends to cook.” ―School Library Journal
Eggs and pancakes, coming right up! Stanley is cooking for all his hungry friends in his diner, while Hattie takes their orders. Then Stanley bakes and serves up a special cake—all for one very special “little” customer.
Starring everyone’s favorite hard-working hamster and his friends, Stanley’s Diner will appeal to toddlers curious about restaurants and food, kitchens and cooking. Brightly colored illustrations framed in bold black outline and a cheery diner setting showcase recognizable menu items, kitchen tools, and appliances. The story ends in jubilant celebration but also with the responsibility of clean up. Then Stanley returns home for his familiar, comforting nighttime routine: “Time for supper! Time for a bath! And time for bed!”
Perfect for fans of Maisy, William Bee’s beloved Stanley series features adorable hardworking hamster Stanley and his community of rodent friends as they work different jobs and help each other along the way. The sturdy padded picture book format is ideal for readers at a transitional age between board books and picture books, and the books are trusted models of basic preschool concepts such as colors and shapes, kindness and teamwork, community helpers, jobs and careers, vehicles, and daily routines.
