Howard B. Wigglebottom Children's Book Review
Raising children is by far the toughest job I've ever had. Sometimes I feel like a broken record saying the same things over & over again. "Pick up your toys." "Don't tell a lie." "Play nice with your brothers." "You have to share." I think my kids have tuned me out. That's why I'm happy to have found the Howard B.Wigglebottom books! Somehow, when it comes from a storybook, it seems to click a lot faster with my boys. My youngest is at very impressionable age and I love being able to read educational, yet fun stories to him.
In this story, Howard B.Wigglebottom and the Monkey on His Back, Howard gets a lesson on telling the truth. He learns that while telling lies gets easier to do each time, it also gets a lot harder to quiet his conscience. I loved the way the moral of the story was presented. The bright colors in this book also captivated my son when I read it to him.
There are currently 9 different Howard B. Wigglebottom books available. They cover important lessons about listening, bullying, anger management, moderation, truth, divorce, peer pressure, belonging, generosity, sportsmanship and attention. You can check them out HERE. Another great tool on the We Do Listen Foundations website is the Color Me Howard page where your child can print pages to color, color online, or even created their own Howard story!
