Busy, Busy by Eileen Spinelli

Busy, Busy is Eileen Spinelli's newest release. You might recognize her name from a review I did of her book Thankful, last fall. Busy, Busy is a colorful board-book, perfect for babies, toddlers and preschool aged children. It's sweet and brightly colored with illustrations that engage my children. 

All the animals are busy, busy getting things done-- "Bear is busy by the river, fishing-- wishing for a catch. Duck is busy in the bushes waiting for her eggs to hatch." Even momma is busy getting things done, buts she is never to busy for her kids.
I have been reading this one with my three-year old especially. With a new baby in the house, it's a good reminder that even though things are crazy right now, I'm not too busy for her. I feel like I'm constantly trying to balance tasks and kids needs. This book is a good reminder for parents too, to set the task aside and give your kid a hug.. or look at their Lego creation for the millionth time.

I received this book form Worth Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
