This book showcases the obvious, that children watch our every move. Drew observes Mom and knows what one button inside her car can do. Maybe? The first attempt to be helpful begins the day's troublesome journey. We learn lessons through trial and error, but Drew hopes your child will learn from the mistakes made in What a Muck.
"This book is great for sparking a conversation. Even when we have good intentions, things can go the wrong way...a sweet rhyming colourful picture book..." -Author, Medea Kalantra
A good book doesn't have to rhyme, but a good rhyming book serves an important purpose. Rhyme helps aid in a child's language and reading development. It teaches verbal and memory skills. When a child hears pitch and rhythm, they are developing listening and attention skills. When a book is easy and fun, a child builds confidence in the ability to recite it. This leads to more reading. When reading is fun to hear or listen to, your child develops important academic skills, all the while being entertained.
