How do you teach your kids to say no to something good so they can save up for something great? A tricky endeavor, at best. Well, the children’s book “Can’t Wait Willow” has the solution! I recieved a copy for review from Flyby Promotions.
This book is a fun adventure of Willow on her way to the circus, which she’s been waiting for a long time. En route, Willow is distracted and wastes her time and money on things that she likes, but ends up missing the circus! This book does a great job of showcasing the little distractions (like an ice cream truck) and making you feel badly that she misses the great event. Don’t worry though – “Can’t Wait Willow” has a happy ending with a valuable lesson learned. It comes with a guide at the front to help your child better walk through and engage the books. Lovely illustrations accompany Willow’s journey. In addition, you can go to the website, www.AlwaysShineBright.com, to find games, activities and more.
I liked this book and so did the girls, but they put notes about the lesson of the book at the front. I prefer it at the back – if I read that part, I lose my kids right away! That was my only complaint.
Well done! I do recommend this book, written by Christy Ziglar, the niece of legendary Zig Ziglar. This book is easy and fun, and I recommend it as a great holiday gift. It retails for $14
