These are some books we recently checked out at the library and had a lot of fun with!
Good Morning Garden -- Beautiful paper illustrations inspire the urge to note only get out and enjoy nature but to think of new ways to be creative with paper.
Princess Chamomile's Garden -- An adorable story of determination and creativity. We ALL loved the final garden design and wished we could replicate it at our house. It was magical and whimsical with some good lessons.
Sweet Strawberries -- This is an interesting story to stimulate discussion on the importance of a positive attitude toward others. It shows how we can choose how to see the world and what an impact that has on our own lives. As readers we can enjoy the thrill of the strawberry adventure and feel smug knowing we would be superior in knowing how to treat others with kindness.
Disclaimer: While others may call the husband a sour man, as a psychologist my impression was that he is a brash, abrasive, controlling, borderline abusive husband, but one who does seem to learn his lesson in the end. If a child has exposure to violent adults in his/her life this might resonate in a negative way. But it does offer adults the opportunity to talk with their children about appropriate ways adults should treat other adults and children.
