Can't Wait Willow! Book review & GIVEAWAY

Publisher: Ideals Children's Books (April 1, 2013)
ISBN-13: 978-0824956486


Choose Right. Shine Bright.
The first book in a new series about helping children learn how to make good choices.
Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is that when left to make her own decisions, she can't say 'no' to her favorite things. On the way to the show, she is distracted by enticing treats and fun that she just can't turn down.

Willow arrives late and is sad to find that not only has she has run out of time, but money, and she won't be able to enjoy the pink cotton candy she's been dreaming of. Willow is given valuable advice and a second chance and is ultimately taught the lesson that sometimes in life you have to say 'no' to good things to end up with something great!

My thoughts:

Christy Ziglar brings us a wonderful book in the series Shine Bright Kids title Can't -Wait Willow!
Can't - wait Willow is all about choices and little ones will love to check out the beautiful illustrations and follow the little star indicative of the right and wrong choices made by Willow! Be prepare to read this one many times!

Sometimes it is very hard to say no and Willow's lesson in choosing the right thing will give Parents, Grandparents and children the perfect opportunity to learn together.

Part of a delightful series to provide education, entertainment and of course inspire little ones, this first book promises to be a hit with one and all!

Christy Ziglar admits she used to dream of joining the Circus as a child and Willow's anticipation of the Circus coming to town will ring a bell or two with most of us! A perfect opportunity follows for Willow to make her choice but she did not think ahead and soon must face the consequence!

Well written of course and including Luanne Marten's delightful illustrations, this book is well worth 5 stars!
