That's Good! That's Bad!

This is one our family's favorite books! The rhythm of the book is perfect as the reader is taken through a series of events that at first seem good... but you soon learn are bad (and vice-versa). For example, the story starts with a boy being lifted by a red balloon... "Oh, that's good. No, that's bad." It's bad because the balloon pops when it hits a tree deep in the jungle. "Oh, that's bad. No, that's good." Good events turn out to be negative... and vice-versa!

We love this book. It is so fun to read out-loud and when you read it often enough, you learn to help your child(ren) see both sides to a situation. So when someone loses their favorite stuffed animal, you can say..."Oh, that's bad! NO, that's good. Now your lonely little panda bear can be your favorite animal and he won't be so lonely anymore!"

This book is available on for $7.95.
