Marigold & Daisy

My girls are 15 months apart, and usually their age isn't an issue.  There are times when the girls are signing up for a sport or class for homeschool and they have different age ranges, which leaves Bella who is 6 in the younger group.  When this happens, then she gets all upset as she doesn't see her herself as younger -- she is taller than that makes her feel older :-)  But, then she joins the group and makes friends and all is forgotten.  

The other day we received Marigold & Daisy in the mail and I couldn't wait to share this upcoming children's book (arrives in stores on Feb. 6th) with my girls.  They were in a sisters funk and fighting over everything.  I thought that this book would help them see how great it is to have a sibling and how they both need each other.  I got my girls to sit together as I read this book and after the story was over, I asked the girls what they thought of the book. They both agreed that it was a cute book, with fun illustrations.  They started talking about what makes them different and how they love the qualities of each of them.  The girls finished reading time with a hug and for the rest of the afternoon, they played nice together. :-)

I love when I can fun cute books like this with the girls, that shares positive messages about siblings.  My girls highly recommend it, and love sitting and reading it together. :-)
