Book Review - "Abe's Lucky Day"

"Abe's Lucky Day" written by Jill Warren is a valuable, new resource to be used with children! Abe is a homeless man who has very little, and yet he sees others who need help more than he does. For example, Abe has a box and he is going to sleep in it, but he sees a little girl and gives it to her for her to sleep in. Then suddenly Abe is noticed by a man and he is offered a home and a job making this his lucky day!

This is a cute story that is written so that children can enjoy it, but also learn from it. It is a great way to teach children to think about others and try to help those in need. It would have been so easy for Abe to keep each of the things he gave away for himself as he was in need as well, but he did not, he put others first. The illustrations are beautiful and my children love looking at them and telling the story by looking at the pictures. This is a great lesson that can be taught through reading this book and I will read it several times with my own children, but also use it with the children I work with. I highly recommend this for parents and anyone working with children.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.*
