Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns About Courage children's book Review and Giveaway! (US/CAN) Ends 3/29 (Rafflecopter)
The We Do Listen Foundation (that creates the Howard B. Wigglebottom books) is a Non Profit foundation, made up of a group of writers, artists, designers, educators, therapists, parents, caregivers and teachers who share a vision of a kinder world with more harmony and peace and a better life for everyone to enjoy. The eleven picture books in our award winning, educator endorsed series tackle important life lessons for 3-8 year olds like listening, bullying, sportsmanship, anger management, self-esteem, moderation, truth, divorce, peer pressure, belonging, generosity, sportsmanship, fear issues and attention.
As my three children get older I find these books to be more helpful with them growing up. We had a chance to review the Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns about Courage children's book. The book explains that it’s OK to be afraid, and that you have to have courage and to be brave! I like that they used a baby bird learning to fly as an example of courage and being brave. My older children are five and a half and three and a half. My three and a half year old daughter Chloe is really, super afraid of bugs (flies, spiders, worms, etc.). She has nightmares where she wakes up screaming, crying, and shaking because she claims that there is a big bug in her bed. She scared me to death when she did this a few weeks ago. This book couldn't have come at a better time. Since we read this book to our children, she hasn't had one bad dream about bugs. She even pointed out to me a dead worm on the ground and thought it was a snake. My children really enjoy reading this book over and over again. I would recommend it to anyone with children from ages 3 to about 8 years old. I also had a chance in the past, to review Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving: A Christmas Story.
Children can go to WeDoListen.org to play games, read through Animated Books, sing Songs, and Color & Print their Own Books! They also have a section on Anti-Bullying and how to deal with bullies.
Howard B. Wigglebottom hardcover books retail for $15.00 in the U.S. and Canada. On their website they’re now on sale for $6.00 or $55.00 for a set of 11. Several Wigglebottom books can be purchased through Scholastic and eBook versions are on Apple for $1.99.
