Readers can head back to class with popular characters in a handful of titles. Rosemary Wells's playful bunny stars in Emily and Friends: Playtime Learning Box, a fun-filled kindergarten kit featuring Emily's First 100 Days of School, about which PW wrote, ""This oversize volume scores big."" As Emily finds something new to do every day, such as learning to sing ""Tea for Two"" on day 2, and playing Twenty Questions on day 20, youngsters can join in the fun by pulling out various add-ons from the sturdy box (with Velcro closures and a plastic handle). A deck of original Rosemary Wells 52-deck playing cards, 100 playtime learning cards with games and activities that relate to the book, a growth chart, a poster with 100 corresponding number stickers, a sheet of achievement stickers and a ruler all add to readers' learning enjoyment.
