I always find these review opportunities to be a bit priceless. The latest, “Can’t Wait Willow” by Christy Ziglar, was again a chance to get my daughters all excited to help out with the blog. If the last name of the author sounds familiar it probably is. Christy Ziglar is not only a financial planner, mother of twins but she is also the niece of legendary motivator and the world’s original optimist, Zig Ziglar. I find it incredible that she has time for all of that AND time to write a great children’s book that both of my girls (10 and 8) loved. Here’s more about the book:
Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is, that when left to her own devices, she can’t say “no” to some good 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!
As you can see from the video, the artwork will capture the imagination of your little ones. The story will teach some valuable lessons along the way. Based on the response and reaction of my girls, Can’t Wait Willow is a can’t miss read.
