Children's Day Books - Piper & Mabel and What Would You Wish For?

Children's Day is just a few weeks away (second Sunday in June, and yes, it is a real holiday), so today I'm very happy to let you know about two new books from Zonderkidz which would make wonderful Children's Day gifts for the children you love who are between the ages of four and eight.

My grandsons love dogs, so when I saw Piper & Mabel I knew they would enjoy this book!

Piper & Mabel - Two Very Wild but Very Good Dogs       

  • Author - Melanie Shankle 
  • Illustrator - Laura Watkins    
  • Publisher - Zonderkidz   
  • Ages - 4-8 (but younger and even older children will enjoy this book as well)

Favorite Features - 

  • Wonderful story about two fun dogs!
  • Fantastic, colorful, detailed illustrations.
  • Solid messages about family, obeying, and love.
Zonderkidz says; "If you are a dog lover, you will enjoy New York Times bestselling author Melanie Shankle’s debut children’s book, Piper & Mabel. Melanie shares the adventures of her two very wild but very good dogs, Piper and Mabel, who have an experience of their own when their owners plan a vacation to the beach. 

The dog duo is shocked to discover they won’t be joining their people on the trip. Instead, they’re headed to doggie day care at the Happy Trails Ranch, where they create all kinds of mischief when they discover the accommodations are not exactly what they were expecting. And when they decide to take matters into their own paws, they end up on one crazy journey."

I found this book to be absolutely fun and delightful! My grandsons enjoyed it - after all the story is about two rascally dogs - I highly recommend Piper & Mabel!

What Would You Wish For?
                                                    Authors/Illustrators - David Sable & Emma Yarlettt             
Publisher - Zonderkidz                                                            Ages - 4-8 (but younger and even older children will enjoy this book as well)

Favorite Features -
  • Imaginative story will get children thinking.
  • Colorful illustrations add to the fun.
  • Solid message about what matters the most, being kind, and making a difference.

Zonderkidz says; "Teach your child how to be kind and make the world a better place with What Would You Wish For? written by David Sable. This colorful picture book guides readers through an imaginative and inspirational journey of how they can change the world. It is a perfect way to get children thinking about doing things for the greater good, not just for themselves."

My grandsons enjoyed this book - and I agree with Zonderkidz . . . it is a great tool to use to help the children you love think and talk about making a difference, being kind, and the things which really matter the most.

Either - or both - of these books will make great gifts for Children's Day - or just to add to your own library!
