Sometime our lives can get quite busy. Little ones might not always understand the multitude of responsibilities that their mother and father have. That's why it is so important to reassure them that no matter how busy we are, we'll always have time for them. That's the whole premise behind Busy Busy by Eileen Spinelli.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Sometimes, when life gets hectic and schedules get crowded, children may feel a little lost in the shuffle. In this new board book, the animals are all quite occupied. Beaver is busy; squirrel is busy; frog is busy. Mole is digging, bear is fishing, and cat is pouncing. And like many parents, Mama is busy too. But she's not too busy for a hug! Children will love the busy animals and the warm conclusion. This lighthearted, lyrical book will gently reassure children that, in spite of how busy their families are, there is always time to share love. Ages 2 to 5.

We really enjoy reading books that include nature, especially animals and insects. It's the perfect opportunity to present an educational experience for my son. Whenever we get books like this, he can freshen up on his knowledge of God's many creatures, while also discovering new ones.
Busy Busy is a sweet book that will be sure to entice little ones as they read about the many tasks of creatures all around. The moral of the story also offers a wonderful reminder that no matter how busy the day gets, there's always time for sharing love and spending quality time with our family.
