Book review Through Our Children's Eyes by Margaret Jarvinen - and a Giveaway (CLOSED)
When I was asked if I wanted to review the book Through Our Children's Eyes by Margaret Jarvinen, I jumped at the opportunity. This book is such an inspirational and insightful book for parents and children.
Through Our Children's Eyes is a book that has quotes from children between the ages of three and twelve years about how they perceive their parents. The book is easy to read and follow, has great drawings and is a interactive book. The book layout is fantastic for children to follow and it has spaces for you to write yours and your child's quote too - a great way to share some insightful moments with your children and keep forever.
I sat down with my seven year old son and we read the book together. It was great to read what other children thought of their parents. The questions are easy to understand such as 'what do you like the best about mum?' We had so many laughs and fun together, thinking about what we both thought of each other. It was great to hear my son's quotes and it gave me so much joy to know that he was able to express his love for me. There are also questions relating to dad 'what do you like best about dad?' which my son read with his dad and it was great to see them bond and share that togetherness.
As a parent, this book made me realise how fun and joyful it is to find out what my child thinks. I love that I can write in the book and can read it many times over and over again. This book is something that you can keep and treasure forever.
My son loves this book! He loves that we have both written our quotes and thoughts and wants to read it all the time.
Through Our Children’s Eyes is a book that is so interactive and will be enjoyed by children and parents. It will allow you to interact with your child and find out things you might not have known. Definitely a must read for every child and parent. You can see more about this book at http://www.throughourchildrenseyes.com.au/ .
