When thinking about children’s books I usually get a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I have very fond memories of my parents reading me bedtime stories from the classic favorites like Dr. Seuss, Disney, The Bernstein Bears and more. Nowadays it is I am sharing this wonderful world of reading with my own children. Every night since both of my kids were born either my husband or I read them a book. Both of my children have a large collection of books to choose from. Many of them have been passed down from other family members and friends. Some have been gifts and others we get from the library. I am pretty sure the librarian is sick of us since every time we go there we end up checking out 30-40 books. Well children books are usually not that long.
What I found out is that a different artist illustrates each page. This makes for some great fun. It is like that game of telephone we used to play as kids.
I read or should I say looked at the book with my daughter. Of course we each gave our own commentary to the pictures as the story progressed. At the end we both discussed which was our favorite character and what item they had received and then gifted. I think this book is teaches a valuable lesson to our children. That is the lesson of giving and charity. Something that I try to instill in my children as well as myself. If you have a chance I highly recommend checking out this book and Goodjoe campaign for more opportunities to give.
