“A Must for every childrens’ book basket February 28, 2018
Once in a while my friend’s 4 yr old son will spend a few hours with me at my house while my friend takes care of a lengthy To Do list in a fraction of the time it takes with a 4 yr old in tow. Not having kids myself, I have always been a bit awkward with children. I wasn’t sure if ‘Mon Vieux’ would screech his heart out for the entire afternoon or not, the first time his Mom bade him to stay and didn’t take him with her. He did settle, eventually. When ‘eventually’ was no longer in the future, but in the present, it was cause for quiet celebration. Mon Vieux took an inventory of the basket I had put things I remembered liking when I was 4. Reading books was one of my most favorite things, and it still is. I instantly saw a kindred spirit as he gathered up My Little Angel and Manner-Man and installed himself under my desk next to my feet. THANK YOU Sherrill!”
A reminder that Easter is Approaching, and Peter is a Rabbit – although one who whines too much…
Although your child probably never whines, Peter’s experience with the Whimper-Whineys might solve any potential whining problem.
Just read the story aloud, using your best whining voice for Peter when he whines and for the Whimper-Whineys when they speak, and your child will get the message!! Peter and the Whimper-Whineys is a real whine-stopper!
Thank you to Ana Morris for the lovely 5-star Review for A Penny for Your Thoughts. It is so heartwarming to find that so many people are able to relate to my attempt to put feelings into words… and I’m very happy she suggests that men would like it as well.
