Reading is a big thing at our house.  I love to read and I want to share this passion with my children.  I firmly believe reading is a stepping stone to everything – academically and interpersonally.  Reading stretches children’s imaginations, teaches them lessons, and provides them knowledge.  I particularly enjoy children’s books that deliver important messages to my kids.

I recently received a copy of Adventures at Walnut Grove: A Lesson about Teasing by Dana Lehman.  She signed it “Treat others as you would like to be treated.”  This book with this message could not have come at a better time.  We have recently been dealing with some teasing issues at school.  It is so hard when kids get in school.  Kids can be so cruel and they don’t even realize how much they are hurting each other.

The book touches on how everyone is different and that makes them unique and special.  Sammy the squirrel has a unique physical attribute, but has many friends.  One day his feelings are very hurt when he is picked on for his unique physical feature.  Name-calling is not nice and these animal friends learn this valuable lesson together.  I love that the book has a list of questions at the end to share and start conversations with your children.  You can also download lesson plans from LehmanPublishing.com.  These books would be excellent to share in a school setting and I plan to do just that.

The book is a simple read with a simple message that we all need to learn.  The story line will keep your children’s interest all the way through.  The kiddos will be learning a valuable lesson without even knowing it!

I think another lesson worth teaching our children is the value of the TRUTH.

Our children need to learn to respect their elders. I am so tired of the way that some kids talk back to their parents.
