There's always a new adventure with Yoko, Timothy, Doris, the Franks and the rest of the gang in Mrs. Jenkins' classroom.With help from each other, their teacher and their families, Yoko and friends explore their similarities, their differences, and their relation to the world in this funny, touching new series just right for young school age children.In the spirit of Frog and Toad and Little Bear, and with simple clear text and brilliant illustrations, these funny, clever, and satisfying stories explore the central issues in elementary school. They deal with making and keeping friends, issues of fairness and justice, finding your voice and unique talents, and navigating the giggles and bumps, hiccups and surprises of the classroom.Mrs. Jenkins's class loves drawing dinosaurs . . . everyone except Doris. Doris feels bad when no one compliments her painting of swirls and blobs. It's only after a day at the museum that the class learns about pre-historic creatures and famous modern artists!
