Big Summer Blowout

Product Description

Busy, Busy! by Eileen Spinelli teaches children that sometimes life can get hectic and schedules can get crowded, but no matter how busy your family is, there is always time to share love. The animals are all quite occupied. Beaver is busy; squirrel is busy; frog is busy. Mole is digging, bear is fishing, and cat is pouncing. And like many parents, Mama is busy too! But she is not too busy for a hug! Recommended for ages 2 to 5 years.

    This is a wonderful board book for moms to read to their children. Children will love the colorful pictures. I love the ending. Hopefully everyone remembers that this is the most important part. I received this book from Worthy Publishing for a fair and honest opinion.

    Feed the cat.

    Pick up your toys.

    Lets get in the car and GO!

    Such is our hurry-up world that even the tiniest toddler knows what it is to be Busy, Busy. Therefore, Eileen Spinellis board book is a tool in the hands of wise parents who know that our work, our rest, and our play all reside on one glorious continuum when our hearts practice the truth of Colossians 3:23:

    Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord, not for men.

    Whimsical illustrations by Elina Ellis support the lively text which portrays the delight experienced by Gods creatures when they are doing the very things that he designed them to do:

    Bee is busy making honey.

    Squirrel is busy stashing nuts.

    Peacocks busy looking handsome,

    Feathers blooming how he struts!

    The Mommy who is busy in her garden at the storys end knows the importance of inviting her little person to help out with a watering can, but the message is loud and clear:

    . . . shed never be too busy for a cuddle-up with you!

    These are reassuring words for the small eyes and ears the book has been designed for, and they are also a gentle reminder to parents to turn off their devices, put down the pencil or the cookbook or the gardening tools and look that little person in the face. Listen to their words. Read them a story.

    Busy, Busy! is a great book to usher in what my kids and I used to call morning clean up. After breakfast, everyone washed hands and faces, brushed teeth, and then we checked the chore chart to see what needed to be done that day. Even the smallest hands can water a plant, swipe a dust cloth across horizontal surfaces, or pick up her own toys.

    God is always at work in His creation. Our work has its beginning in Him and is a gift from His hand. Busy, Busy! is a delightful way of teaching our children and grandchildren that along with the beaver and the cat and the spider at her spinning, when we are at work, it is the Lord Christ we are serving.

    If I were to make a checklist of what I look for in a board book, I think that Busy, Busy! would hit them all.



    The story is lively, upbeat, reassuring with an unforced rhyming scheme that would be pleasant to read aloud multiple times. There are things to talk about, like why pigs take mud baths.The illustrations are bright, cheerful, cute and kid friendly. There are small details to discover, like a spider in her web.



    With a title that is easy to remember and fun for a toddler to say, the physical book itself feels sturdy, with rounded corners on the right side. All of the pages are smooth and glossy, as is the cover, and the book is constructed in a way that it will easily lay flat when open to any page.



    Overall, this is a happy book with adorable animals and a message at the end that Mom might be busy, but she always has time to cuddle with her child.

    This could easily be a favorite for read-aloud..



    I recieved a free copy of this book through Worthy Publishing's First Look blog tour program in exchange for an honest review.

    Let's face it life gets busy but with Eileen Spinelli's book Busy, Busy ! youngsters are going to be reassured that no matter how busy their mother might be she will always have time to share her love and snuggle with them.

    This is a sturdy little book that will withstand young hands, and many readings. The pages and covers are hardboard and shiny which would be easy to keep clean, and the rounded corners to the front of the book are great. The illustrations are vibrant and bright, I found myself smiling at the various animals as I turned the pages. I can see youngsters wanting to read along and I would think it would be great to point out the various animals on the pages. Written in a rhyming prose that flows smoothly. This book is really geared toward mothers, whether you're a stay at home mom, or work outside the home, life is always busy and this adorable little book would be perfect for reminding your youngster that you are never too busy to spend time with them! I can just imagine this being a great little read right before naptime or bedtime, or just anytime you want to snuggle with your youngster.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
