And later Grandpa’s Den and A Snowy Kiwi Christmas.
This is a review for “I Did It!”
I really like the story too, great for our children this one: giving a great responsibility message to them. Using the teaching virtues of responsibility, helpfulness, respect and caring as examples would make a great series of short books, especially for the 2 to 4 year olds. Children only learn these virtues by learning about examples of what they look like. Cushla showed responsibility in this story, respect is something that children need to be reminded of constantly but they don’t know what the word means until somebody compliments them for using it: then they have something to hang the word on to, if you know what I mean. Resilience and Empathy are, I believe, the two most important virtues for children to learn. I see so many people acting badly through lack of empathy!
