Kayla is such a special little girl. She is body-positive, friendly, family-centric, and all-around just lovely. In the third book in this series, Kayla considers how people view themselves. Their hair, skin, scars, and everything else. I love that she considers these things, but ultimately decides that those are the things that make us special.
Kayla has such a special message for young readers through this story, and I truly hope that it finds its way into every little reader’s hands. Reinforcing the importance of self-love is so important, and I’m so happy to see it written so strongly in this story. My daughter and I will be reading this again and again!
Kayla is at it again! In this book in the series, she becomes friends with a little boy that needs some support. I really love that this book features mental health, and shows what types of support we can offer people that need help.
Kayla is a great role model throughout this story, and I think that children everywhere can relate to her and her friend. They can also learn so much from them! My daughter enjoyed this book, and I think that children ages pre-school through middle elementary will enjoy this as well!
Kayla is such a wonderful little girl. She has a loving mother who supports her and helps her see how special she is. I love the focus on family in this book. We really see what a lovely relationship Kayla and her mother have!
This is a story that so many children will love. It’s easy to connect with Kayla and for children to see themselves in her story. There is a great message about finding out who you want to be and pursuing that, as well as a wonderful reminder to enjoy your time together as a family! The illustrations are quite lovely, and my daughter absolutely enjoyed them!
This book. I have nothing but love for this! What an absolutely fabulous way to help children with their feelings! The message is positive, encouraging, and understanding of children and their feelings! I love that it makes children feel like they are in a safe space to express and understand their emotions.
This was a wonderfully interactive story, which asks the children to participate in different ways. We have some seek and find activity, but also some really great actions for self-love. My daughter really enjoyed interacting with Piggie!
There are so many things that are new in a child’s life. I really enjoy finding books that help them experience these life changes. The Adventures of Molly & Ollie: Moving Day is the story of Molly and her move to a new home.
Molly is worried about moving. She doesn’t want everything to be different, and she is sad to leave her friends. When she gets to the new house, she meets Ollie, an owl that lives in her backyard. He helps her to see the things that are the same, like all of her stuffed animals and toys. He is a welcoming new friend for her, and he makes the move much easier!
Learning to tie a bow can be a very frustrating time for children AND parents! I know it has been for my family. My son can pretty much tie a bow at this point, but my daughter is still not really able to do it. So, having this book land on our doorstep was perfect!
Cleo Can Tie A Bow teaches the reader how to tie a bow using illustrations and easy-to-understand instructions. If you have a young child that is or will be learning to tie a bow, this is a wonderful tool to help you!
Mickey on the Move is a story that features a young boy with cochlear implants starting at a new school. I thought this was an awesome story to introduce children to our differences and celebrate them.
I loved the Mickey teaches us about difficulties that he’s already figured out how to overcome, but we also get to experience some with him. It was a nice balance throughout the story.
Wow! This was a pretty darn cool book! I know that sounds a little dramatic, but seriously, it’s awesome!
So, why do I like this little gem? It’s got amazing illustrations that are gorgeous, and beg to be looked at. Along with the beautiful artwork, the information provided in this book is great for not only children but adults as well!
Books that will make my kids want to learn are amazing! This series fall into that group! My daughter is still working on learning to be comfortable with her letters. She can read, but she sometimes mixes up her d and b, and sometimes she just needs some extra encouragement. When we got this series, she was so excited to start it!
The red and blue boxes each have half the alphabet. There is a book for every letter, and each book is extremely easy for a child to read, making them feel empowered and encouraged as they complete a book!
