3 Granny-curated books wrapped in a unique, handmade, giftable Granny “P.A.C.” for family reading from newborn through elementary school and beyond teaching messages of PEACE, ACCEPTANCE, AND COMPASSION.
The Golden Rule – Ilene Cooper: A family favorite for all ages, newborn on! A delightful conversation between a grandpa and grandson on how to live a compassionate life by a rule that is… “so valuable and a way of living your life that’s so simple it shines.” While this book shares the translations of this rule in world religions, e.g., Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, Shawnee Native American, etc., it is not restricted to the “religious.”
All parents/grandparents who are trying to teach their children to “treat others the way they want to be treated” would appreciate the message and beautiful artwork of this book. It’s my most popular coffee table book in my home.
Red, A Crayon Story – Michael Hall: newborn – elementary school. A red crayon who in spite of his red cover keeps coloring blue. The talking crayons all have advice for him but end up celebrating his uniqueness and understanding it’s what’s inside that counts. A strong favorite among children and adults because of the well-written story and graphics for a meaningful message.
I Like Myself!: – Karen Beaumont: newborn – toddlerhood / young children, a small board book that’s easy for little (and big fingers) to read. A spunky little girl explains…“Even when I look a mess, I still don’t like me any less, ‘cause nothing in this world, you know, can change what’s deep inside and so…” A delightful, fun-loving book that promotes self-confidence.
