Several months ago I received a book called The Tale of Ole Green Eyes. I read it to my daughter and she couldn’t stop asking questions. The book is about a couple of sisters who visited their grandparents and was told a story from their great grandma’s past.
The setting of the story was sweet and summery, an old fashioned and serene scene from the hills of Tennessee. The climax was from the children’s imagination, that was also when my daughter’s eyes opened wide to ask: "what happened next?...."
We take it for granted that simple things could be such a big deal to children. The Tale of Ole Green Eyes did something for me too, it made me take a step back to appreciate the views from a child’s mind. Slow down to realize how they absorb things, and to appreciate how they see the world and their surroundings.
I recommend this book for you and your children. It is a sweet, clean and refreshing book. The book is available on Amazon.com (just click the icon below) and you can also contact the author on Cathy Kennedy’s Blog to request an autobiographed book for your little one.
