Book Review and Giveaway: The Day No One Played Together. Ends Dec 19th
The Day No One Played Together: A story about compromise by Donalisa Helsley and illustrated by Sara Harkey
Jadyn and Genesis want to play and have fun but neither one wants to play what the other one wants to. What will they do? Will they be able to brainstorm and find a way to play together? Will they play alone? The Day No One Played together teaches an important lesson in a fun way. Join these sisters in the first of their series.
Review: A story about two sisters who decided to go outside and play. Both had a different ideal on what they would like to do. Genesis wanted to play in the playhouse while Jadyn wanted to build castles and make stuff in the sand. But neither one wanted to play what the other wanted to. In this book their mom did a great job teaching the children about learning how to come up with ideals on how to compromise. I think is fair to say that not only children can relate but adults too.
The message in this book is about compromising. The Day No One Played Together teaches us that knowing how to compromise is a key component to a good and healthy relationship. Parents and teachers should teach children that compromising doesn’t mean giving up but making a deal where one person gives a part of his or her demand.
This book is beautifully illustrated by Sarah Harkey with realist expression that brings this book to life. I highly recommend The Day No One Played Together not only for your children’s library but for classroom teaching.
