A few days ago I had the wonderful opportunity to share with you a review of two books in the "Watch Me Grow" series. These books are written by Mary Packard and illustrated by Lisa McCue. My daughter and I really enjoyed Little Chipmunk's Wiggly, Wobbly Tooth and Little Raccoon Learns to Share. You can read my review HERE.
So as you can imagine.... I am very excited to share with you two other books from the "Watch Me Grow" series...
Oh this is the perfect book for our family! My little girl just became a big sister and we are still emphasizing what a special and important role it is. Before my son was born she wanted to pick out special gifts for the baby and be involved in all the preparations. This book brought back those memories and she talked about bringing the stuffed tiger she picked out for her brother to the hospital. I am a big fan of books for new big sisters/brothers that emphasises how wonderful a new baby will be and how special the big sibling is.
This book is a must for any little one going off to school for the first time! We just recently looked at preschool's for my daughter and she was so excited. But when we sat down and read this book I started to think to myself... she may be excited on the outside, but I wonder what she's worrying about on the inside. This book gave us the opportunity to talk about it. I asked her if she felt nervous or if she had anything she was worried about. Right now she says no.... but I am glad we have this book to read again as we get closer to September. I think it sends a wonderful message that it's ok to be nervous... it's normal to be nervous. And it sends a good message... that school is fun!
Now that I have had the pleasure of reading all four of the books in the "Watch Me Grow" series and can confidently recommend these to parents of young children. I love that they all touch on real feelings and events in kids lives in a light hearted way. The characters are cute and loveable and the messages are short and sweet. Perfect for little ones!
