***Disclosure: “I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hands-on-Prints books. I received books to facilitate my review.”***
Sophie, who will be starting Homeschool Kindergarten this fall, is already a reading pro. She reads long, complex words, sentences, and paragraphs with absolutely zero hesitation. She even reads novels. She is reading at a level far beyond her 5 years, so we thought that by choosing to enroll her in a Homeschool curriculum, we could prevent her from being too bored, and continue to offer learning activities that challenge her and keep her engaged.
Xander, on the other hand, is pretty average for a 4 year old. He doesn't share the same reading abilities as his slightly older sister, but he does have a huge desire to learn, and loves exploring the world around him. Reading is something we just need to work harder on with him. No shame in being average, though, and we're just as proud as can be of his accomplishments, too!
We received 5 great books to review, but I allowed each of my little ones to choose their personal favorite to share with you all. Xander really enjoyed "Do I have to? What if I don't want to...", written by Jamie Anderson, Christina Cheung, and Beth O'Connor. The adorable illustrations were done by Hsiao-Yen Chi.
I, as his mother, definitely appreciated this book, because it helps children and adults alike identify a wide range of emotions and explore healthy ways to cope with them. While the book is definitely in favor of expressing emotions, it also teaches ways for kids and parents to help restore calm in simple, loving ways.
