I received a copy of the eBook for the purpose of this review. However, the opinions stated herein are 100% my own.
Imagine a world where kids can truly be kids. Where they would believe in themselves, stick to what they believe in and be supported wholeheartedly in their passions. Imagine a world where kids could learn how and when they wanted – not bogged down with “have to’s”, “must haves”, and “must know”. Can you imagine it? Wouldn’t it be a much better world to live in? I think people would be more happy – in general because happy kids grow up to be happy adults.
Just imagine it? Kids were supported so that they could attain the best possible.
To me, this is the idea behind Faux Paw. A new and fabulous picture book written by the woman who typically tells her stories in Rhyme.
Title: Faux Paw
Author: Julia Dweck
Illustrated by: Walter Carzon
Platform: Kindle, Nook
Date of Publication: October 22 2013
I love Julia Dweck. The fact that she loves children and knows what they want and need to hear – is evident in all of her picture books. An author who is known for her excellent books for kids – Julia Dweck is the epitome of class. She always combines excellent and educational stories with fabulous illustrations to create a picture book that kids of any age love. Faux Paw is just another example of her superior talent in education through storytelling.
While Walden was at school, his teacher asked what her students wanted to be when they grew up. While most gave the typical answers (doctors, lawyer, teacher, policeman), Walden said he wanted to be a bear. Astonished, the teacher quickly told him that he couldn’t be a bear. She said, “It is impossible. Human children grow up to be human adults – not bears”.
Broken hearted, that night he told his mother what happened. To his great happiness, she encouraged him by sending him off to school, the next day, in a homemade bear costume and telling him that he could be whatever he wanted to be! When Walden got in trouble for acting like a bear, guess who showed up at the Principles office?
Guess you have to read the book to find out.
I just love that message. This is the unwavering message felt throughout this entire book. This book exudes positivity – and this is what makes it my favorite book thus far. I love the positive message that it sends to children.
True to Julia Dweck’s style, as a teacher – she has some very interested bear-facts in the back of the book. I learn so much from Julia Dweck!
Where to buy this book
To be honest, I loved every single thing about this book. When I reviewed this book on Amazon and Barnes and Nobel, I gave it the highest marks – and deservedly so. It’s excellent storytelling, fabulous message that every child should hear (daily) and big colorful illustrations make it an excellent candidate for a very good giveaway.
And who doesn’t like a good giveaway?
I certainly do – especially when it gives kids messages of positivity and encouragement.
