My little one is at a point, now, where she gets a little discouraged if she doesn’t master a task right away. I’m talking about tasks like naming colors and numbers. She’s pretty much mastered her letters and has learned that with a little practice, things do get easier.
It can sometimes be a bit difficult to convey the message of “with practice, comes perfect” to a two-year old as I’m sure some of you know.
I was recently introduced to an adorable read along, sing along, play along children’s book called When Simple Was Hard to Do
by Marylyn Varriale. This fun children’s book
completely conveys the message that though learning new things in life can be difficult at first, with a little practice they might just get easier and more fun.
When Simple Was Hard to Do comes with a CD so you and your child(ren) can sing along as you read the book.
I also love that my daughter and I can sit at the piano and play and sing this song together using the sheet music provided. At only $12.99, this book packs a huge punch.
Cd, sheet music and book – what a great deal!
This book would make a great gift for kids of any age and I suggest you check it out at and purchase it for $12.99 at WhenSimpleWasHardtoDo.com or by visiting the banner on my sidebar during the month of August.
