In fact, if you gathered all the reading benefits in one scroll, you could be reading for days. The simple truth is that there is no part of learning and growing that can’t benefit from reading. Guided reading for your younger children, investigative and informative as they get older.
There will always will be space for great fiction adventures.
And that’s why Granny Jen is Missing is on trend. Actually, Jennifer led the pack when she wrote this book. She allows the two children in the story, to speak through their actions, and the way they tackle problems.
Maximum Enjoyment, Minimum Distractions!
Granny Jen’s philosophy is easy to discover and decipher. She has a few fundamental principles:
- 1.Life lessons don’t have to be painful
- 2. Teaching kids without tantrums, yours or theirs, is preferable
- 3. Every action has a consequence: make a choice, live with the results.
The first one is obvious, but not always possible. Learning life lessons before you get to #3 is Granny Jen’s preference. Reduced horror stories for their kids. A life loaded with enough information to start the journey to wisdom.
The second principle is just as fundamental for Granny Jen, but less apparent. She means that avoiding toxic conversations, relationships and decisions dilutes meanings and messages.
Number 3 is last because it forms the foundation of life. We may want to forget the words, clean out the bad memory and vow it will be different next time. It takes a lot of energy, thought power, decision making and failure to achieve this. Better to avoid that choice in the first place.
The result? You are more relaxed. And, you’ll have more time for reading.
Imagine seeing and feeling positive changes in your kids and how they relate to others. Story books can speed up their awareness of what they can do differently. Teachers see it all the time… that’s why they choose their classroom library books very carefully.
Double up on the benefits. Don’t just buy the book because it’s cheap, or just like the movie. Choose books that will get to your kids, show them lessons, and help them see choices and consequences.
There’s only one little problem…
