As a teacher, I love books that are fun to read, yet have a great lesson to learn when you read them! That is truly the case with the Howard B. Wigglebottom collection of books!!
When Mr. Howard Wigglebottom (Binkow) himself contacted me about taking a look at his books and his website, I was pleasantly surprised with what I saw! The books are written with a great message and the pictures are bright, colorful and adorable! But the website…it is out of this world!! It is so full of great information and fun activities for the kiddos!! There are games, coloring sheets and songs(with words so that the kids can sing along) and each book that Howard has written has a poster and a set of lesson plans that can be downloaded for FREE!! What teacher (or parent) doesn’t LOVE that!! These plans are also available on the inside of each hardcover book.
I was sent a copy of the book Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving: A Christmas Story. It is a cute story about a boy (bunny) that has a case of the gimmies!! All he can think about at Christmas time is making his list for Santa, which never ends!! However, when Howard gets separated from his parents and is lost, he meets some friends (birds) that do not have a home and they just want a family to love them. After that encounter, Howard Wigglebottom realizes how blessed he is and when he and his parents help find homes for his new friends, he realizes the power of giving and the great feeling he has when he shares with others.
I can not wait to sit down with my grandkids and watch all of the great animated books over at The We Do Listen Foundation website!! Yes, that’s right….not only does Howard Wigglebottom have hardcover versions of his books, he also has animated versions and they are absolutely FREE to watch.
