Darah has really become quite fond of a particular story book character, lately. His name is Howard B. Wigglebottom, and all of his stories contain really relevant lessons for younger children. We have been reading Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen for a few months, now. It has inspired some great conversation about just how important it is to pay attention.
Our latest book from the series is Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Monkey on His Back: A Tale About Telling the Truth. Recently we have noticed that Darah has discovered that there is, in fact, an alternative to telling the truth. So this book has been very timely for us, as it has given us a great tool to start conversations with her about how tough it can be on everyone when the truth isn’t told.
Howard B. Wigglebottom is the product of the We Do Listen Foundation, which offers a wealth of FREE resources for parents and teachers. Many of the books that are available have free animated versions online that you can enjoy right now! Here’s the animated version of the book I reviewed today! https://www.wedolisten.org/media/
There are also songs, games, lessons and posters. Additionally, each hardcover book comes with great ideas for discussion at the end of the book. I think this is an impressive foundation with excellent resources. Hardcover copies of the books retail for $15 and can be purchased most everywhere books are sold in the U.S. and Canada. They are currently on sale on the website for $6 each or $50 for a set of all ten books (US only). What a deal!
Win it!: One lucky Stuff Parents Need reader will win a copy of Howard B. Wigglebottom (your choice of title!).
