5.0 out of 5 stars ‘Gimme-Jimmy’ – perfect to ecourage sharing and politeness,
Do you know anyone who has a problem with sharing? Do you know anyone who seems selfish? If so, this is the perfect book for them.
Jimmy is nicknamed, by the kids at school, Jimmy-Gimme because whatever he wants, he just says Gimme! He then takes it from wherever it is at OR from whoever has it!
His daddy tried to talk to him about it but Jimmy did not listen nor obey. However, one day Jimmy encountered a big problem…then bigger….then even Bigger!
This has a bit of the fantastic in it but it definitely gets the main point achieved. It is all accomplished through rhyme to enhance the child’s thoughts and direct them toward poetry. Rhyme is an easy way for children to learn and memorize.
The illustrations, by Kalpart, are truly wonderful and clear.
These are books which need to be in every pre-school and elementary school library. They should also be in every home where there are toddlers and young children.
