My daughter loves books and loves being read to. That being said, she is also 4, and is an only child. As is the case with most only children, she has a bit of an issue with sharing, and she is somewhat spoiled (I know, I know, but she is my baby! =0) ) When I discovered the Howard B. Wigglebottom Books from the We Do Listen Foundation I knew I wanted them ALL!
The main character in the books is a little bunny named Howard B. Wigglebottom and the stories are all about the lessons he learns in his childhood and the things he goes through to learn them. These books are so awesome. They are so cute, with wonderful stories, but they have great lessons in the stories. Great lessons about morals and values. Listening to your heart, giving, sharing, bullying, lying, sportsmanship, and so much more. All these things that children need to know about but sometimes parents don't know how to explain. Also there are short lesson recaps in the back of the book, sort of like a discussion, which I think is SUPER GREAT!
For our review we received Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving : A Christmas Story. I chose this one because it is Christmas time, and my daughter really needs to learn about giving. The story tells about how Howard is very obsessed with his toys and how many material things he has. He takes his home and family for granted until he gets himself into a sticky situation! I am not going to give away the story, but let's just say he learns a very valuable lesson from a few good friends. My daughter loved this book, and so did her father and I. We thought the story was VERY well written, and the pictures were beautiful.
You can purchase the Howard B. Wigglebottom books online from the We Do Listen Foundation or Amazon. Also the latest book Howard B.Wigglebottom Learns About Sportsmanship: Winning Isn’t Everything is now on sale for $6 for US buyers on the We Do Listen Foundation website.
