During the holidays we are always rushed and running around like crazy! Somedays I feel like I never even sit down. And all this running around leads to our kids missing out. They miss out on spending time with us because we are so crazed trying to get everything ready for the holidays. Even on the busiest of nights I try to set aside 20 minutes to read to my daughter. So when I’m out and about I like to pick up a few books to keep on hand. Pumpkinheads has 2 new books out – Peanut’s Mistake and Imagine.
Peanut’s Mistake is about a little girl, Carmin, and her dog, Peanut. Peanut was playing inside the house and made a big mess, a big mistake. He was so scared. But Carmin helped him clean up his mess and reassured him it was ok. In Peanut’s Mistake the moral of the story is it’s ok to ask for help. And that everyone makes mistakes.
Imagine is a super cute book about encouraging kids to use their imaginations. It would be perfect to gift this book with a magic wands so the child can use their own imagination just like in the book.
I really enjoyed reading both of the Pumpkinheads books to my daughter. Not only are they well written and entertaining there is also a lesson, or moral, in each book. In Peanut’s Mistake is was about letting kids know it’s ok , everyone makes a mistake. And that it’s ok to ask for help. In Imagine the lesson was all about using your imagination, you can see, be or do anything you can imagine. Both books had beautiful illustrations that drew my daughter’s attention into the book. The drawings brought each story to life and helped make the book even more engaging.
You can find Peanut’s Mistake and Imagine as well as many other title by Pumpkin Heads online.
