grandma's bookshelf - Not Inside This House!

I'm very happy to share with you a new book with a story sure to delight your young grandchildren!

Not Inside This House!Not Inside This House!
Author - Kevin Lewis
Illustrator - David Ercolini
Publisher - Scholastic
Ages - 4-8

Livingstone Columbus Magellan Crouse is a boy who most certainly wants a pet! This whimsical story will delight your grandchildren - especially if they are children who particularly want a pet - as each pet grows in scope and size! Your grandchildren will be amazed at the lengths Livingstone Columbus Magellan Crouse goes to to find a pet, and you will understand his mother's growing frustration! While this mother could certainly benefit from some "Love and Logic" parenting classes, this story gives you an excellent opportunity to talk with your grandchildren about the best ways to present their requests to their parents as well as how to best respond if their parents do not think their request is a good option. Talk with them about how they can "make requests of God" and how He always answers - sometimes with "yes", sometimes with "no" and sometimes with "wait a while". Enjoy the illustrations - there are so many details to notice on each page!
