What a great story! Focuses on the importance of listening to your parents and opens the door to great discussions of rules and why it is always better to listen to Mommy and Daddy than to try something that can end up hurting you. I love the Cardboard Box Adventures and the way it encourages thoughtful interaction between kids and parents.
What a great story! I love the way the questions help parents discuss the problems the character has, and how he could have avoided it! My children easily related to Twitch, and this led to talking about some of the rules Mommy and Daddy have for them! Every parent, grandparent, aunt and uncle should pick up a copy and read it to their kids!
Twitch the Squirrel is another great addition to the Cardboard Box Adventure set; they're all funny, cute and have a sory to tell, but I like Twitch because it really addresses listening to your parents. It's easy to think you know it all when you're a kid, and this book points out that parental guidance is really important, because they do know more than you. I like this book for older kids too. It's a valuable lesson and the questions at the end open great dialog. The illustrations are colorful and well done,too! A good, quick read with a valuable message.
Its like this has bad writen all over it
