It’s another busy day for Stanley and friends at the grocery store!

Stanley has fresh fruits and veggies to be unloaded, Myrtle needs help at the cheese counter, Shamus and Little Woo’s groceries must be rung up, and―oh no! Charlie just knocked over Stanley’s produce display. Running a grocery store is hard work, but Stanley pulls through!

Accessible text and brightly colored illustrations helpfully convey grocery stores and shopping for toddlers who love equipment, tools, and vehicles. After a hard day at work, Stanley winds down his day with a familiar supper and bath routine that makes this series a great pick for bedtime reading!

William Bee’s beloved Stanley series is a trusted model for basic preschool concepts like colors and shapes, kindness and teamwork, jobs and daily routines. Toddlers will love hanging out with this adorable cast of friendly neighborhood critters in any of the available series titles. Help your little one collect them all!

“Children will be able to easily point out squares, circles, and rectangles in the depictions of different grocery items, store fixtures, and character features. Describing each employee’s responsibility during a typical shopping day, this story shows how employees in an organization work as a team to enable it to function. A terrific toddler time choice with loads of appeal for Stanley fans and those new to the series. ” —School Library Journal

“A satisfying addition to the Stanley the Hamster series.” ―Booklist Online
