Guess what? Appreciation doesn't come naturally. It has to be taught...and learned.

Learning Appreciation

read an excerpt

A girl pouting over what she doesn't have or a boy jealous of another child who appears to have more is an unsatisfied child. A child who feels appreciation is satisfied.

Here's the thing though: babies only know when their needs aren't being met. A young child has to learn the difference between needs and wants, and also that Mom and Dad aren't responsible for meeting every want.

Do you have a pouty girl or boy, bordering on bratty - a child more likely to feel unappreciative than appreciative?

My children's book about pouty behavior, How Bobo Learned to be Satisfied, is a form of bibliotherapy. Bibliotherapy is the use of children's books to address problem behaviors.

It's an important story, one that might help any child see him/herself as others do. But I've done something else to make sure that Bobo's message really hits home...

Illustrations are important!

The goal with a behavior book is to get your child to interact with it repeatedly. That way the book's lessons are reinforced. That's why we offer two PDF versions of Bobo...
