Trade Paperback

This charming new picture book series of heartwarming stories and illustrations will help prepare young children for new situations. The First-Time Stories series stars six-year-old Amy and her little brother, Ben, who—like all preschool children—have mixed feelings about first-time experiences. These gentle, warmly illustrated stories present a positive message about change and growing up. A must-have addition to every young family's library.

Ben has an earache, but he's too scared to let the doctor check him. When Amy volunteers to be examined and gets a sticker for being brave, Ben decides that maybe the doctor isn't so scary, after all!
