NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 6

Templeton Gets His Wish 
by Greg Pizzoli. 
May 2015.

From Amazon: "Templeton the cat doesn't like his parents telling him to clean up, and he really doesn't like when his brothers steal his toys. So, he makes a wish on a magic diamond, and his family disappears! At first, Templeton is over the moon. He's free to lounge and play all day, and he never has to take a bath. But being alone might not always be as fun as he'd thought. Will another wish on the magic diamond get Templeton what he really wants?"

My thoughts: I feel like this book's message spoke to me more than to my kids. My girls are very much in an age of wanting to spend every waking moment with me -- "will you play ponies with me?" "will you color with me?" "will you read to me?" -- to the point where sometimes I feel like a bad parent for wanting to be alone (I am an introvert after all). So this book reminded me of what it would be like if I truly was alone all the time, and how much I would miss my kids after all. But they did like the book too. :)

Recommended Age: 3-5 years
