    One thought on “Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving: A Christmas Story”

    1. This review is for all 10 of the Howard B. Wigglebottom books: chatwithvera/2012Howard B. Wigglebottom is a delightful bunny that has a bit of difficulty with life. He encounters bullies. He doesn't listen. He needs to learn to share and to give. He needs to learn to listen to his heart. Author Howard Birkow understands children's needs and the struggles they face on the playground and in the classroom. He and illustrator Susan F. Corneilson have put together a series of 10 books that will help [...]

    2. I read the book with my 6 and 8 year old. The book held my youngest's attention a bit more than my older child. The pictures were very colorful and engaging. The story had a simple premise that is clear to children and my kids definitely got the concept that is it better to give than to receive and that being selfish or greedy can get you into trouble. I appreciate that the story opens up a dialogue on several important topics like sharing what you have, being content, the importance of family a [...]

    3. We are considering buying Howard B. Wigglebottom Series for our library and we happened to have this one already in our library. I loved the message and I think we are going to buy the series. I like at the back it has talking point with parents on things to discuss "The Happiness of Getting" "The Happiness of Giving" "Learning to share" "Paying attention to stay out of trouble" "Homeless" "Talking to Strangers" "Spirit of the holidays or Christmas" The illustrations are great, it can be taken a [...]

    4. Conflicted on this one. I love the Christmas Carol-type message about changing a greedy heart, but I don't like the fact that when Howard is separated from his family at the train station, he just wanders off alone. Even my kids pointed out that this was a dangerous choice on Howard's part and were worried about him getting home safely. Good for Howard for learning the true spirit of Christmast so much for the lack of safety skills.

    5. I love how this story incorporates the true meaning of Christmas. It's about giving more than getting. I try teaching my boys that some people do not have homes, toys, loving families, food, warm blankets, or parents. It's is also meaningful to show that when we know about some children that do not have these things that we could help them by picking out a special toy from our collection for example and giving it to them. The joy of giving is the best gift of all.

    6. This book brings light to so many important things, especially during the holiday season. For example, getting and giving, learning to share, paying attention and staying out of trouble, homelessness, and the spirit of the holidays. This is a good book to reinforce all of these examples and help them recognize the importance of them. It is a perfect sequencing activity from all of the different settings throughout the story and all of his adventures along the way.

    7. Mr Binkow did a wonderful job at teaching children through his story about how Christmas really is about giving and not getting. Howard the Bunny thought that his stuff was the most important things to him until he nearly looses them AND in the process looses his family and meets homeless 'friends' that have nothing but are happy. He soon learns that his toys would make them happy and he has a way of making THEIR Christmas wish come true.

    8. This is a story that explains the importance of sharing. The message is good, but the idea of a little bunny being lost on his own is concerning. Also there is a part where he flies with birds that really lost me. Please note that it is part of a series.

    9. The end of the book has "lessons and reflections" that talk about the happiness of getting, the happiness of giving, learning to share, paying attention to stay out of trouble, homeless, talking to strangers, and the spirit of holidays.
