#blogbookaday: No Biggy!

1 Sep

No Biggy.jpgSummary:  “The empowering book sweeping the nation that’s helping kids and parents successfully manage frustration.

Getting frustrated is a part of life! And, whether Kiki is working on squeezing toothpaste right onto her toothbrush, getting the zipper to slide all the way up her jacket, or spreading cream cheese on a bagel, she learns to take a deep breath, say “No Biggy!,” and try again—after all, things don’t always go exactly as expected on the first try!

Kiki even teaches her mom and dad a thing or two—yes, grown-ups get frustrated, too! Bright and encouraging illustrations picture Kiki throughout her day, right up to her big bedtime bubble bath. Filled with love and positivity, No Biggy! is certain to become the go-to, favorite saying in your home.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Kiki loves to do a lot of things, but sometimes things make her frustrated, or upset when things don’t go her way. Her parents handle this by saying, “No biggy! Let’s try again.” Kiki shares this lesson with kids at school, her teacher and even reminds her parents, that it’s “no biggy!”

Personal Reaction: This is a great introduction to teaching kids perseverance and learning that not everything is going to turn out perfectly the first time or even the second time. I think these are the skills that are most important to teach kids – regulating emotions and reactions to events in a way that is age appropriate and in a way that they can take with them throughout  their life. This is a perfect way to teach kids about perspective and overcoming obstacles!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
