In our house, we are big fans of Todd Parr’s books. Even though our daughter is only about 9 months old, the Peace Book is her absolute favorite book to read. It’s bright and sends such positive messages, in a world where our kids are inundated by negative messages from the media. Believe it or not, this book actually beats out her Elmo book as far as her level of enthusiasm! My favorite page says, “Peace is watching it snow” because I do find that incredibly peaceful. My hubby’s favorite page is “Peace is having enough pizza in the world for everyone.” Go figure! Lillian (our daughter) has a favorite page too, hers says “Peace is giving shoes to someone who needs them.” Every time I read this book aloud to her, I feel so good because I know I’m sending her such positive messages about life at a young age.
Todd Parr actually has a ton of great books! We also have the “I Love You” book and the “I’m Not Scared Book” – both of which our daughter loves! What I particularly love about both of these books is that again, they send very reassuring & positive messages. For instance, one page in the I Love You book says “I love you when you are scared” and the next page says, “I love you when you are brave.” The story basically takes a bunch of things that kids might need reassurance about and juxtaposes them with reinforcing messages of unconditional love. So awesome.
The “I’m Not Scared Book” is written in the same way. One page reads, “Sometimes I’m scared of the dark” and the next page says “I’m not scared if I have a night-light.” I absolutely love that Todd takes things that lots of kids are afraid of and turns them right around into positive statements that feel so reassuring. (Is it bad if I too admit to being scared of the dark?!)
We are huge fans of these books. I was not paid to do this review, in fact I contacted Todd Parr personally because I wanted to do this for all of you!
I even captured a cute little video of Lillian with her three books:
