Hold Your Breath and Hope for the Best
Do you enjoy reading bedtime stories to your child? I love that time at night when we can just curl up, put the day behind us and escape to the world between the pages. What happens when that world is hard to read or has material that may be funny to your child but is rude or obnoxious in some way. I go to the book fairs and struggle to find kid’s books that will be appropriate for my kids to read but still interest them enough to read it. I want my kids to be captivated enough to finish it and would it be too much to ask to teach them something as they read? A moral, a value, a lesson that can help them be a better person, a better friend, more respectful to adults? I love the kid’s books that slip it in there and they don’t even realize they are learning something as they read.
Have you ever sent them to their bookshelf to pick a book and you wait nervously holding your breath that it’s not certain ones that make you want to roll your eyes to the back of your head and sigh? All you can do is hope for the best that they choose wisely. It makes reading time much more enjoyable! There are certain ones I can read over and over because they are so cute and I love the story line when it very subtly throws in a little lesson or a way they can be a better friend or do their best or include others or never give up. They don’t even realize they are learning a valuable lesson. To them, it’s just a dinosaur who was accepted for who he was even when he couldn’t breathe fire like the other ones. Or it might be a raccoon who was there for a friend when he needed one.
I love it when I come across a word and say, “Do you know what that means?” My son shakes his head and I get to tell him the meaning of it and increase his vocabulary while we’re reading. Reading is very important to me and I want my kids to enjoy reading because it opens their minds up to a wealth of information and imagination. If kids can develop a love for reading kid’s books while they are younger, then as they get older, that love will hopefully grow and continue to increase their knowledge in so many areas of life.
I took my passion for reading and my desire for my children to have a book that not only interested them but also provided a valuable lesson and I created Changed By a Catch. It involves a typical young boy who loves to get into mischief but through the book learns that his parents actually do have a reason for rules. He finds out the hard way to never underestimate others or judge them because of who they are. Strangers are not allowed in the house and fruit punch does not come out of white dogs very easily! Changed By a Catch is a humorous kids book that touches on many lessons throughout the book while providing a chuckle here and there from the main character JJ and his crazy antics. For those of you with girls, JJ has two sisters who are in the book as well and teach JJ several lessons on forgiveness and strength.
If you want your child to enjoy reading or you would like to curl up for a bedtime story and not hold your breath and hope for the best, please check out Changed By a Catch and get to know JJ and his crazy calamities!
If your child likes Changed By a Catch, stay tuned for Caught in a Cycle which will be coming soon!
