Great book to help a little one deal with the transition to life without a pacifier I liked the short, simple text as well as in the inclusion of a main character who is not Caucasian The Big Kid Power series was developed to help encourage children as they near the brink of major changes and milestones. Nothing mind blowing, but a good, short choice for encouraging a kid or supporting an effort to ditch the binky I like that it offered other ways to soothe your emotions instead of just you re a big kid now, get over it. Babies Use A Binky Do Big Kids No Big Kids Say, Bye Bye, Binky Every Child S Life Is Filled With Milestones Some Happen Easily Others Need A Little Extra Support Artist And Mom Maria Van Lieshout Has Been There Drawing Upon Her Own Experiences, She Has Created An Engaging Series Of Books That Are Just Right For Children On The Brink Of Major Changes And The Caregivers Who Encourage Them This and its companion book about using the potty are cute and will be great for the intended purpose Diverse cast is a plus. Nice book for when it s time to ditch that plug I like the concept of this book and the illustrations The only thing I didn t like was how the girl gave her binky away to another baby That s gross I know this is just a story, but I didn t like that I wouldn t want my kid thinking that s an okay thing to do. Simple and basic Should work well with SS when we are ready to tackle that challenge Let it be soon, I hope Bye Bye Binky is all about getting kids to stop using the binky When she was a baby, she would get tired, hungry, unhappy, or cannot sleep Her parents would give her a binky And it worked She calmed down and, if tired, went to sleep with less difficulty Then the no binky day arrived It was time for this big kid and her parents to let go of this safety blanket and learn to find comfort in other ways As a big kid, she can now ask for hugs, cuddle her stuffed animal, snuggle the dog, or ask for something to eat when hungry The binky goes to another baby Why Because SHE IS A BIG KID This type of book is not new Authors have been writing about growing up and all that entails, but this series gives the power to the child As the narrator, and he or she proudly.To Read the Full Review and View Interior Spreads, Go To Digital illustrations accompany brief text as youngsters learn how to let go of their favorite blanket Although I like the idea of helping young ones grow up with confidence and transition from needing a binky for comfort to mature actions such as needing a hug, I m not so sure I like the idea that letting go of the comfort object as part of maturing is the way to go I would imagine the main character in this small board book would still feel as though she s missing her comfort object It isn t as easy to let go as the book seems to indicate Still, the idea behind the Big Kid Power is a good one. Who wears afro puffs and a delightfully mod dress in orange and white The charming, and grown up girl from Bye Bye Binky All kids want to be big kids, and this book helps show them how You ll love it.
