Wednesday’s are Jude’s library days and I am always excited to see what book caught his eye for the week. Last Wednesday when he showed me the book he decided to check out, I laughed at first but when we started reading it I immediately thought how SPOT on this book really was. Honestly, the cover made me think he had picked a book that was way over his head but guess what? He got it! And I love that he GETS it.
The book he brought home was this:
It looks a bit old school but the message is there.
Basic overview of the book:
Inspiring and motivating book in rhyming verses, teaching children that money isn't everything and the best things in life are free and there's Abundance in life to be, do or have anything you want. Creative self-help book. It's great to simplify such big concepts for children in this way .
Every day I see and hear about young kids that truly get everything they Need and Want. The result is not pretty. I do not want my children growing up with the expectations that they too get all of those “things” just because they want them.
The direct message of this book is perfect – in fact I needed to read this phrase even more than Jude I think.
