Edie Is Ever so Helpful! by Sophy Henn -- ADVISABLE

Henn, Sophy Edie Is Ever so Helpful. PICTURE BOOK. Philomel Books (Penguin Random House), 2017. $17. 9780399548062

Little Edie is SO proud of how helpful she is. She is quite happy to wake her family up (very!) early, select (way too many!) items at the grocery store, and push kids on the swing at the park (whether they want it or not!) But is it possible to maybe be a little TOO helpful?

Parents and teachers who have had children with larger-than-life, I'll-do-it-myself personalities will likely recognize Edie's antics. And kids who are themselves too enthusiastically helpful could learn a little something from Edie's own consequences. All in all a delightful book with fun pictures and a plucky protagonist.
