Terrence Tullgren tells the fresh and inspiring story of a shy young boy who learns the value of time. Donnie doesn't want to do his homework. His mother takes him outside to observe animals in the woods near his home and how they prepare for the winter. Donnie learns that time is precious, and by being prepared he can use his time wisely. The book helps young children understand the importance of planning ahead. The story is beautifully told, in words any child can easily relate to. The pencil-line, retro illustrations by Charles Gibson hearken back to a time of old fashioned values as they skillfully complement the text and reinforce this important lesson. The cover intentionally features black and white images so that the reader has no preconceived notion of how to color within, therefore fostering each child's innate creativity and imagination. The result is a must-own book for any child. Tullgren weaves a story both touching and impactful for young hearts and minds. Donnie Learns the Value of Time is the fourth book in the Donnie Learns series on values for young people.
