Howard B. Wigglebottom Children's Book #Review & #Giveaway

* GIVEAWAY CLOSED *
Thanks to everyone who entered!

And the winner is...
Comment #153: Kellie Conklin

Congratulations, Kellie!

Howard B. Wigglebottom is a cute little bunny who is having fun, growing up and learning how to behave. He learns from his mistakes and along the way can teach your child too! With 9 hardcover books available, there is a lesson for many common issues facing parents these days.

For this review, I received the books Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen and Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving: A Christmas Story. Although the books are targeted at 4-8 year olds, I enjoyed reading them with my 2.5 year old. He is at an age where he loves to have books read to him and he really listens to the stories. I know these books will create a great foundation for learning in the years to come. The illustrations are beautiful and easily kept my boy's attention. I particularly love the lesson summary at the end of each book, which is a great quick-reference for parents to refer to and even contains discussion questions to help you reinforce the book's message.

Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen follows Howard as he gets in trouble at school by disrupting the class, not paying attention to his teacher, and ignoring his friends. A time-out helps him slow down and think about his actions. He resolves to make a better effort to listen at school and at home, and in the end is a happier bunny for it. This is a great story for my boy because he is non-stop action and exerting his independence. I envision this book being invaluable once he is in school and struggling to sit quietly, pay attention, and listen just like Howard.

Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving: A Christmas Story is a lovely tale that follows Howard from greed to giving. In focusing on the "getting" of Christmas, he finds that he has taken for granted all the things that are truly important, like family and friends. Learning to share is a hot topic with a 2-year-old in our house. Playdates always involve a struggle or two (or ten) over toys and we're constantly trying to teach our boy about other people's feelings and how to enjoy playing together instead of focusing on ownership of a toy. This book has gorgeous illustrations and valuable lessons in giving, getting, sharing, and much more that can be applied year-round, but will be a particularly useful reminder during the "present-centric" Christmas holidays!

The "Howard B. Wigglebottom Learn to Listen" book is basic and SO IMPORTANT, even while sharing all of the other books, and for many aspects of learning and communicating and being a friend!
