Through the use of interactive questioning, Around My House!, the first book in the Smart Start series for prereaders, fosters engaging conversations for parents and their children. Images in this book convey children in realistic and familiar settings around the house: in the kitchen, the playroom, the bedroom, the garage, and more. Around My House! prompts children to think at critical, creative, and mathematical levels about their everyday surroundings, and the open-ended questions stimulate curiosity and invigorate conversations between parents and children. Around My House! highlights the vast world of a child's imagination and encourages children to think deeply about the objects and situations they're faced with every day.

Ages 3–5

Review by: Kathleen Ulrich, Children's Literature - November 1, 2015
The first book in the new “Smart Start” series features adults and children in realistic settings and activities. Interactive questions for each picture guide discussion to foster creative and critical thinking, as well as mathematical thinking. There are no conclusive answers, only exploration of creative ideas about what the children in each picture might be doing . . . An extended list of questions for each page is also provided at the end. For more interactive ideas, readers can visit a recommended web site.
