Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns We Can All Get Along – 14th Book in the Series

Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns We Can All Get Along – 14th Book in the Series

Children must learn at an early age  how we can all get along with others. Now parents and teachers have a great resource to help them teach this valuable life skill to the children in their care. The book I recommend is Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns We Can All Get Along by Howard Binknow and Reverend Ana.

This is the 14th in the Howard B. Wigglebottom Series of children’s books. The team at Special Needs Book Review has already reviewed a few of this series and each one is excellent! Find links to these reviews at the end of this post.

These picture books help 4-8 year olds be better listeners, learn important life lessons and feel good about themselves. Each book teaches a lesson that children need to become good friends with siblings, friends, and classmates. These social life skills will make them a better person now and as a tween, teen and adult.

Howard B. Wigglebottom is a  marvelous series of children’s books that entertain and educate.  At the end of this post,  find all the book titles ( Fall of 2014) and a short phrase showing the main lesson learned in each book.

Here is an excerpt from Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns We Can All Get Along to show you how the rules of getting along are skillfully incorporated in Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns We Can All Get Alongthe story. The main character, Howard, a lovable rabbit, is upset and sad because he has not been invited to a picnic party. He confides in his grandmother who has this advice for him:

Page 15, 16, 17, 18

“Howard, my dear, it sounds like you need to learn important lessons before you can be invited anywhere!” Grandma exclaimed.

“Would I be invited to the party if I learned the lessons right away?” Howard was interested.

“I’m not sure you have enough time, Howard, ” Grandma replied. “Without practicing, it’s too hard to learn a new way of doing things, but let’s try.”

“Would you like your big brother telling you which team you can root for?” asked Grandma.

“No, Grandma, I wouldn’t.” Howard said. “I like to pick my own teams. So, I should not tell my friends whom to root for, right?”

“Right!” Grandma cheered. “Everyone needs to  have a say.”
