February 24, 2019

This is a really cool concept for a book. It explains step by step what’s happening during mommy’s pregnancy. It’s designed to be read week by week as the pregnancy progresses, not all in one sitting. Great illustrations accompanying child friendly updates explaining what’s happening to mommy.

This is a story of a little girl that is feeling some anxiety about going to school. So she figures out a way for her to deal with the negative thoughts and overcome her anxiety. I really think books like this are important to read to kids. Children need to know that it’s normal to have these feelings and having books like this around can be enormously comforting. Reading books like this to the little ones is the perfect opener to having some important conversations about communication and feelings. I’m very happy to include this book on my Children’s Bookshelf!

This is a really sweet story about a young girl missing her father that has passed away. Perfect for any child dealing with loss in any way, family member, friend, pet etc. I found that it really helped some of my students become more supportive of one student who had recently lost her grandmother. The artwork is fantastic and the story is presented so beautifully. The world needs more books like this!

I really enjoyed this book. About a bear that hears his neighbors playing music and is feeling grumpy about it. Once he notices all his friends are enjoying it he decides to try something new. He begins to play on the drum and realizes trying new things is pretty fun.

As a teacher I'm always looking at things from an educational point of view. I love that it teaches kids about healthy eating. I feel like health and nutrition is a topic that is so fundamentally important to a person's long-term well being, that it absolutely must be considered a core subject. Unfortunately educational systems around the world are moving slow on this so it's on parents to do the research and teach the next generation how to take care of their bodies. Books like this are fantastic as an introduction to this conversation.
