Have you read any of this author's darling little books? I hadn't until I chose to review this one. I was attracted by the darling cover. Perfect timing since my CJ is almost 2 and loves to snuggle in my lap and have me read him stories. He's never too young to start getting good messages! I'm going to have to order more of these books for his birthday.
We enjoyed this book with it's engaging story and message of love. The illustrations really hold a little person's (and a big person's too) attention. They are very well done. Usually a child's board is silly and too simple, but this one had great dialogue and wasn't "dumbed down" for a toddler.
I would definately consider this a CM type of toddler book, for you homeschool moms out there.
This little story's setting starts out with Little Cub and Grampa out fishing together. There's a problem to be solved (they are bothered by the otters) and Grampa teaches Little Cub to love and forgive. He goes on in the story to develop the love of family and love of God. Wonderful little book! I'm so glad to find something with such good content and worthwhile to read my babies.
You can find a copy here.@ CBD.
Excerpt“Otters!” Little Cub shouted.
“Otters! You’re scaring away the fish!”
“Easy, Little Cub,” Grampa said. “The otters can share our spot.”
“But Grampa,” Little Cub complained, “if they scare all the fish away, we won’t get any.”
“That’s all right,” he said. “Half the fun of fishing is being together, right?”
