Too Tall Houses
Struggling with selfishness? Got the gimmes?
Sick of hearing, "Mooooooooom! Johnny won't give it back!" or "Daaaaaaaaaaad! Sally hit me!"
While I thought that Too Tall Houses by Gianna Marino (c. 2012) presented a lighthearted (and B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L-L-Y illustrated) approach to this time-worn dilemma, the book sparked an interesting conversation amongst unsuspecting little listeners. And while I thought that it prompted a fortuitous response among my brood, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that my friend Sarah's brood responded the same way. So give it a whirl.
