My Wonderful Website for the month of January is Maria Dismondy's website. She is a wonderful children's book author that develops great books for counselors and teachers. Check out my post about Maria's newest book...
I am so excited to be a part of a virtual book tour with many other counseling blogs. I want to start by thanking Maria Dismondy for allowing me to preview her new book, Spoonful of Sweetness. In my current job, I have the privilege to work with children as young as 18 months, so this book will fit into my counseling program perfectly.
This adorable book is a great way to teach very young children about core character traits. Many adults focus on toddlers' appearance instead of the child's behavior, and therefore, children are often praised for superficial reasons that the child really doesn't have any control over. It is important to teach good character at a young age, and then focus on praising children when we see them expressing the taught character traits. This book is a great psychoeducation tool for young children and parents of young children. It's a fun way to help children have great manners!
I encourage you to visit Maria Dismondy's website by clicking on the button above. Maria is a talented writer that produces great books to help counselors. I have used her book, Spaghetti in a Hotdog Bun, in many counseling groups and lessons. I know that I will do the same with her new book, Spoonful of Sweetness.
