Review of Lilly’s Big Day by Cathy Stewart

Do your children ever get distracted and then “forget” to do something you told them to do? In Lilly’s Big Day by Cathy Stewart, Lilly gets distracted and suffers the consequences.

I strongly believe books and media should be used as springboards to discuss moral lessons. This book could easily be used to discuss the lesson of listening to your parents without nagging your kids. It provides the opportunity for kids to see natural consequences of not following parent’s instructions. It gives the opportunity for parents to ask their kids questions: “What did Lilly’s mother tell her to do?” “Did she do it?” “What happened when she didn’t?”

It’s a simple story with a good lesson. If children will learn from Lily’s consequences, maybe they will avoid consequences of their own.
