I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, though I’m slowly getting into the Christmas mood. However, when the book I’m about to review arrived at my door step, I proceeded to read it to my son that night. By the time we finished the book, I was ready to pull out the tree and start decorating!
The We Do Listen Foundation generously sent me a copy of their book Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving: A Christmas Story. Just like many of their products, this book follows Howard B. Wigglebottom, a super cute bunny rabbit on his journey of life, learning many lessons along the way. Not only is this book a fun Christmas theme read, but I love all the lessons taught! In this sweet story, little Howard realizes how happy he can make others by sharing and giving. At first he doesn’t like to share, but realizes what an unhappy bunny is keeping his toys from others. He eventually discovers the joy in sharing with others!
|Mommy, can we read it again?!?|
Baby C absolutely loved “helping” to turn the pages and looking at the vibrant illustrations! While he may not understand the words now, I think this is a book he will learn to appreciate as he grows older and discovers the meaning of Christmas. Reading the book with your children gives you the opportunity to discuss not only the importance of giving, but topics such as homelessness, talking to strangers, paying attention, staying out of trouble, and of course, the spirit of Christmas.
The We Do Listen Foundation also offers other books starring Howard on lessons like learning to listen, dealing with bullies, good sportsmanship, telling the truth, and more! What a great series to share with your little ones!
