"...sometimes you need to learn to say no to little things that are good to end up with a big thing that is truly great!"
That is the lesson that Willow learns in this well - written, beautifully illustrated children's book. My two children, 9 and 6, could easily relate to the tough choices that Willow has to make. What child can resist the playful melodies of an ice cream truck? :-) My children quickly picked up on the lesson that the author was pointing out.
The author, Christy Ziglar, niece to motivational speaker Zig Ziglar, shares a quick note to parents at the front of the book, giving suggestions on how to reinforce the lesson taught in the book. There is also a website with coloring pages, family ideas, etc... using the characters from the book.
