As a TommyMommy, our family was given the opportunity to read three *NEW* Hermie books and review them. Graciously, TommyNelson is providing a set of these books to give to one winner- a $22 value! How cool is that!
Tristina, my trustworthy 7 (AND 1/2) yr. old assistant, has agreed to provide her opinion for each title. So, here we go:
Hermie a common caterpillar is a Level Two Reader designed for a reader in training with simple words and short sentences. Tristina says:
It’s about Hermie. He’s walking around and he’s seeing all these different bugs. He sees pretty things on them and he wants to be like everyone else. He sees an ant and he wants to be strong like an ant. Then Wormie and Hermie pray and go to sleep. Hermie dreams that he is like all the other bugs but when he wakes up, he is a butterfly.
The point of the book is if you see other people and they have something cool that you really want, you should be yourself as you are. Before you want to be like everyone else, you should pray first. Then you should get a little rest. And maybe if you wait and give God the chance, then He will do something different for you.
Thank you, God, for blessing me
This book is about Hermie wanting all these other things but God gave him special things. It’s ok if you don’t get all the things you want because He gives you the things you need.
Thank you, God, for loving me
This book is about God always being by Hermie’s side. If he gets lost or worried about something, he knows that even though he can’t hear God, he can still hear Him in his spirit.
So there you have it from the mouths of my babe! The later two books of the above are “Read 2 Me” books, with rhyming words and similar phrasing, our toddler Tarah listened intently through these two stories. Just right for 2’s and 3’s, but first grader Samuel enjoyed all three of the above. And fourth grader Michael enjoyed reading aloud to toddler T and his older disabled sister, Taylor.
