Spoonful of Sweetness Book Review & a Freebie!




I recently had a opportunity to preview this adorable new book, Spoonful of Sweetness and other delicious manners by Maria Dismondy. Maria is an Award Winning Children's Book Author. She is passionate about her family, photography, charity work, public speaking, and about living life to the fullest each day. She shares activities, crafts, giveaways, and a ton of great advice/ tips for families and educators alike on her blog- hop on over and check it out!




She has also written these other amazing books:







While this book is recommended for children ages 0-3, I just had to share it with my Kindergarten class. It teaches responsibility, respect, empathy, kindness, friendship, and courage. Afterwards, we discussed what those words mean to babies, and what they mean to big kids like them. They had the cutest answers! One student said "to babies, friendship means sharing your bottle, and to us it means sharing your snack." Love it!!



I hope this freebie is something you can use in your class.
