The Panda's and their Chopsticks Book Review

I have another really cute children's book to share with you from Wisdom Tales called The Panda's and their Chopsticks written by Demi.
Eating bamboo shoots with chopsticks three feet long? Impossible, you say. Not if you are a playful panda and learn to share and work together with your friends! In her beautifully illustrated new book, award-winning author, Demi, presents ten classic animal stories, each containing important moral lessons for little hearts and minds to absorb. Cunning kitties, helpful hummingbirds, talkative turtles, and hasty hedgehogs, all bring these meaningful fables to life.  
Through her magical illustrations and whimsical storytelling, Demi teaches the importance of being humble, the dangers of being too proud, the importance of generosity and sharing, and how everyone, no matter how small, has a part to play in life.
Purchase your copy of The Panda's and their Chopsticks on Wisdom Tales and on Amazon.

This book is for children 4 and up. It will be available in August of this year, 2014.
There are 10 fables (nine are about animals and one is about a river flowing into the ocean) and it includes a moral or proverb for you to talk about with your children. There are only 28 pages so it should hold their attention and most children love animals and these pictures are stunning! The images are very colorful and each story has it's own unique color. So, even if they aren't good readers, they will recognize their favorite animal story by the color of the pages associated with that story.
I have reviewed quite a few books from Wisdom Tales and my grandson has loved them all and the ones that I gave to my niece have always gotten rave reviews! They are both educational and for fun. You are teaching them to read but also manners, morals and to some degree a little bit of history or how the world operates to a lesser degree. The stories are entertaining and full of adventure, just what a child wants in their stories. These books will inspire them to want to read more and you won't have to worry about any bad language or scenes.
Happy Reading!
