makes little minds think
Josh we saw you at the Brunswick Swams playgroup and my daughter just loves her book (she's three) as we progress thru the chapters she's now recognising the numbers and saying them aloud. She also said to her sister being you is enough! Your book makes her little mind think, she keeps her listening the entire book, makes her laugh (poo!!) and I just wanted you to know how much she loves your book, thank you!"
It's message was perfect
The book was absolutely lovely.
I had no expectations, nor did I even know what it was going to be about.
I read it with my daughter, the day before her 7th birthday.
It's message was perfect with perfect timing. She has been carrying it around and reading snippets to her 3 year old brother.
Kids will want to get their hands on it as soon as
I received a review copy of this colourful book from Big Sky Publishing, so thanks a lot. I immediately know I would keep it in the library in my classroom. It's a great book to bring out and read to children from pre-school to mid-primary.
Kids will want to get their hands on it as soon as possible too, I foresee.
It's very simple, very bright and very communicative.
It covers a plethora of bad days and emotional difficulties kids are daily subjected to, while it teaches them to be brave, hopeful, wise, imperfect and caring. it encourages children to feel they are acceptable and cared for and ultimately much loved.
'Being You Is Enough' is a much simplified message of the type of encouragement usually found in Dr Suess books, which I love. Well done Josh Langley
