Our household is knee-deep into parenthood. With four children all looking for guidance, love and support to deal with their emotions along the way. This is no easy task and at times it really tests my emotions as a mother.
I was recently approached by a creative mother of two active little boys about a book she just published. The title; Sharing is Love- My Brother and me. She had my full attention because the timing was inspectable. Sharing is something that naturally is a struggle for most children but when you have 3 other siblings and 2 of those are boys like you sharing becomes a very hard thing to do.
Babic Books aims to inspire kids to grow with kindness, caring, and compassion. Sharing Is Love tackles an issue in many households: battles among siblings over toys. The story is positive, straightforward, rhyming, and filled with love. A great message that little kids can easily follow.
Sharing is Love is for ages one to five. Anita’s first installment is specific to brothers, but pertains to siblings of any gender.
Sharing is Love- My brother and me, does not claim to solve sibling battles, but merely offers another way for children to learn about the topic, while combining a fun and colorful book with rhyming that kids can enjoy.
Sharing is Love- My Brother and me in review
” The first time we read Sharing is Love- My Brother and me I gathered all four children on the carpet for a teacher type of read. Although the book is talking about brothers I knew Miss C who is 8 would gather some very useful information from it as well.
Our children loved the cover page’s illustrations and made connections with the toys. From the beginning Anita catches their attention with toys from their own toy box.
After each page I took the opportunity to talk about what was read and what the children were gathering from the illustrations and story. The children seen the disagreements between the boys and were very puzzled about the situation. They knew exactly what needed to happen and how everyone could get a turn.
Anita took an everyday problem from many households and told a story that children can connect with. It is a quick read and told with words and pictures the children connect with. Once the story was done I asked questions and kept the conversation rolling. We all finished in a group hug and our children went off to play with smiles. The best part was they shared and played together. “
