But Why Can't I? - A book about rules

By Sue Graves
Illustrated by Desideria Guicciardini

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

A series that introduces young children to different emotions and aspects of behaviour, through a fictional story appropriate for the age group.

George thinks rules are silly. When Jenny comes to babysit, George refuses to keep to the rules. But that makes playing dangerous and not fun at all! Can George learn why rules are important?

This series introduces young children to different aspects of our emotions and behaviour. A fictional story is backed up by suggestions for activities and ideas to talk about, while a wordless storyboard encourages children to tell another story.

Supports the Personal, Social and Emotional Development Area of Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage. For children aged 3-5.
