We picked up Squirrel’s New Year’s Resolution from the “New Arrivals” shelf in our library, and we both really enjoyed it. The book actually explains the idea of New Year’s resolutions in a language that even young kids can understand. In the book all squirrel’s friends make resolutions – to plant a garden, to be less grumpy, etc, but squirrel doesn’t know what hers will be. Eventually her friends point out that she already has one and is doing it successfully.
After reading this book Anna was very enthusiastic about making her own resolutions. I printed out pretty paper from here, and Anna dictated hers to me. There is one resolution in this list that was suggested to me – can you guess which one?
- 1. Clean my room every day.
- 2. Give more hugs and kisses.
- 3. Brush teeth twice a day.
- 4. Stop putting fingers in my mouth and nose.
- 5. Help people every day.
- 6. Learn how to swim.
She said that she will come up with more since there is still space left on the page :)
Tune back in tomorrow for my own resolutions.
PS – my mom asked for this picture – she knitted the jacket for Anna, and her friends don’t believe her :) Mom, Anna loves her jacket!
