Lily's Little Life Lessons Book 1 & 2 by Rebecca Perlman Coniglio teach children to be thankful for the people in their lives who love them and to realize that they are indeed "lucky."
Little Lily's Life Lessons Book 1 features Lucky Lily and Lily's Lucky Daddy and Book 2 consists of The Luckiest Girl and Lily's Lesson.
In Lucky Lily we are introduced to the darling little girl who is the star of the books, Lily. Lily, explains why she is so lucky and it's not because of her "cute button nose or even her stylish clothes." So what makes Lily so lucky?
Lily's Lucky Daddy reminds us of the important role a father plays in his daughter's life. Because her daddy makes time for her everyday Lily knows her "life is going to be awesome." A father is a daughter's first love after all!
The Luckiest Girl highlights the special gift a mother receives when she watches the love shared between her mother and daughter. Although Lily is lucky to have so many people who love her this time the luckiest girl turns out to be someone else.
Lily's grandparents don't live in the same house and Lily wonders why? In Lily's Lesson, Lily's mother is faced with the difficult task of explaining divorce. Lily's mother ensures Lily that her grandparents love both Lily and her mother and having a relationship with them is important. She also tells Lily "that daddy and I will keep our eyes on the ball, so your heart will never, ever have to fall." Lily's not sure she understands it all, but is grateful her mom took the time to talk to her.
Jen Mundy's illustrations in Lily's Little Life Lessons genuinely capture the beautiful little girl, Lily, who has so many lessons to share.
I recommend picking up a copy of these charming books.
