I recently became aware of the non-profit organization We Do Listen.com
Through a series of books, songs and games ~ the foundation works to encourage children to feel good about themselves. A series of Howard B. Wigglebottom, books, uses the cute lovable character to relate to children to teach them valuable life lessons.
I was sent the book pictured above to review with my children. As soon as I pulled the book out of the package, my kids new the character Howard B. Wigglebottom, from their school library. The name is cute and memorable!
I have been a life long reader and prefer books over tv anyday. I've been reading to my children, since they were born. It's the perfect way to snuggle together! As we were reading the book, I enjoyed the light tone, I was able to elaborate on the sentences to open up a great discussion with my children about why it is important to give to others. We have become a very materialistic society and I want to instill in my children the joy of giving! The illustrations are beautiful and would easily keep children unable to read captivated just looking at the pictures. At the end of the book there is a page to guide you in a conversation about the important lessons covered in the story line of the book ~ as well as information about the resources available on the wedolisten.com website. While there you are able to access free animated books, games , and songs. Since receiving the book, my kids frequent the website often. It's a great family friendly resource.
I plan to purchase some of the other Howard B Wigglebottom books in the series for my children for Christmas. They are available through the wedolisten.com website, right now for half off.
$7.50 is a great price for a hardback book!!
