Book Name : Just Saving My Money
Author: Mercer Mayer
Illustrator: Mercer Mayer
Theme/Topic: Little Critter needs a new skateboard and he learns from his dad that it takes money to get a new one….
What You’ll Love About This Book: This book is a good to read together as it will spark conversations about money, chores and costs of things. I thought this book would be a great way to introduce money and how saving money is important. It talks about that saving money is a good thing. The trip to the bank is probably out-of-date now (wish they could update it to show critter checking his balance on-line!). I thought it was pretty cool that Little Critter got to save up his money to open a bank account then had to work to save up more money to get the item he wanted. Those familiar with Mayer’s other books will find this one just as charming and the lesson about earning and saving for something that you want is a good one. . We love trying to find the mouse and spider that seems to follow the main character around, they’re always doing silly things. Fun engaging themes that any child can relate to, a great addition to any children’s library.

What You’ll Love About This Book:
This is a cute story of a girl and her younger brother who always follow her like a shadow. Her little Brother is a Bother; in fact, as she writes the book’s title on the mirror with lipstick, she adds the first ‘r’ in brother only as an afterthought. We have real emotions as an exasperated older sister tries all sorts of ways to get rid of her shadow of a little brother. Wishing that he would “just disappear”, the older sibling dresses as a witch and tries “magic”, him away But when she awakens one night to find her brother’s crib empty. Debi Gliori uses every device at her disposal to build suspense. Her clever arrangement of text and pictures and her double-page spread of his imagined fate were pored over again and again, as was the delightful ending. Readers who have known pesty younger siblings will relate to this very well. A very good read again and again!!!

What You’ll Love About This Book : I read somewhere “Kindness changes the brain by the experience of kindness. Children and adolescents do not learn kindness by only thinking about it and talking about it. Kindness is best learned by feeling it so that they can reproduce it. “By Patty O’Grady, PhD, an expert in neuroscience, emotional learning, and positive psychology, specializes in education.
Stories always captivate minds. They are better to instill any concept than loads of theory.Recently when I found this book I realized how true is that. Your Turn Now book does the same. It will be an enlightening read! Make the world a better place to live in!.I finished this book at one go as I was aware of the concept, but the presentation of this book to a 5 year old child is what makes this book special.This book tells us real stories how people have found out ways to help people for not any favor but just as gesture to make this world a better place to live. And how the chain is followed by others. A very inspiring and positive book. This book is a must read book for all ages.
