Compassion and Understanding: Lessons from These two Books

 I received a couple of books full of lessons for kids and adults alike from Wisdom Tales.  I love partnering with companies like Wisdom Tales  that gives opportunities for parents like me to have a copy of their newly published/released books.  Wisdom Tales books are not just ordinary books, they contain beautiful stories full of life-learning-lessons both for kids and adults.  
I have two kids and sometimes, even though I teach them how to share all the time, there are still instances that they wouldn't especially if it involve their favorite toys or things.  So  the story of "The Olive Tree" is perfect to remind them once again how   nice it is to share things  not only with your family but with other people as well.  The award winning illustrator, Claire Ewart included  beautiful paintings on this book.  This books contains a story of two children  who are learning to share and work  together  by looking past their differences. This book will be published  in November 2014, these are just the first copies.   This book definitely teaches children and even adults  a lesson about how compassion and understanding lie at the heart of all friendship.  I highly recommend this book if you are looking for something for your kids to read.  This is  suitable for kids ages 5 and up.  
Summer is ending and Fall will be here soon.  Big holidays are  just around the corner and with that being said, this book "The Dreidel That Wouldn't Spin" would be a perfect book  to  get and read with your kids as you snuggle up with them during the cold season.  If  you celebrate Hannukah holiday, then this book is  just perfect as it explains the meaning of the Hannukah holiday and the story revolves around it.
Whenever I let my kids  read a book, my first question after they read is "What lesson did you learn".  My daughter has a  long explanation about this book which I  wished I could have captured in video.  This  book  tells a very strong message that when you believe, things and miracles  still happens even at a very unexpected ways.  For those of you who have bookworm kids, this is another book I would  recommend to get.  It's a beautiful story full of lessons to learn for young minds.    Thank you so much once again Wisdom Tales!

  1. These both sound like beautiful stories! I know that my kids tend to soak up the meaning of a story more than my own words, so these would be the prefect addition to our collection.

  9. I will take note of "The Olive Tree" book because I want to teach this to my son too. He's our only child and there are moments when he refuses to share with his friends and playmates. I think this book will help us teach him the value of being able to share with other people. Thanks for sharing this to us!

    1. It is really hard sometimes because even though we practice sharing at home, kids tend to be protective of their things outside home which result to not sharing.

  19. It's great that your kids are exposed to those kinds of books where virtues and values are taught. Kids these days need to know everything about values, virtues, manners and good conduct.
