Pippa’s Corner – What Do You Do With An Idea?

We are a house that loves to find inspiration within the pages of a good book. This goes for mommy, daddy and even Pippa. …Ok, so maybe Pippa isn’t inspired by books just yet – but she does love her books and we know that one day the messages will be as important as all the lovely pictures! But we are a house that believes that a thoughtful book can be the best gift in the world – and this is true for each one of us.

Pippa has a birthday party to attend next weekend. The birthday boy is going to be 3 years old. 3!!! What an exciting age full of wonder and discovery! But what to get a child who will be 3? We could get toys, coloring books, clothing… all very nice and appreciated, I am sure. But when it comes to choosing a gift that is suitable for a 3 year old, I have it in my head that 3 is a great age for a great book.

I truly, truly believe that beautiful illustrations can capture a child’s heart, bringing them closer to their books – creating a love for them. An inspirational story is something they can grow in to. Younger children may not be ready for a profound message now but they will be one day. Books can encourage help that process. And even better – if his mommy and daddy do a read-along with him, which I know they will, maybe they will find some inspiration in these pages. I know it happens to me, so often. So often.

This is what we selected for the birthday boy…

What Do You Do With An Idea?

Publication Date: February 1st 2014

“This is the story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world. As the child’s confidence grows, so does the idea itself. And then, one day, something amazing happens. This is a story for anyone, at any age, who’s ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, too difficult. It’s a story to inspire you to welcome that idea, to give it some space to grow, and to see what happens next. Because your idea isn’t going anywhere. In fact, it’s just getting started.” ~via Goodreads

 

 

 

 

I am beyond blown away by the gorgeous illustrations and the heartfelt message in this picture book. I sure hope he (and his parents) enjoys What Do You Do With An Idea for many years to come!

This book is a must read for all ages. Never again will you think that your idea isn’t worth nurturing…

 

…of course, we had to get this adorable plushie idea!

 

Do you have a favorite book that you like to give little ones? What is your “go to”? We’d love to hear about it!

I'd love to hear from you!

Itโ€™s been a hectic couple of week between battling colds, festivities, out-of-towners, and more colds. 
I think Iโ€™ll join these two for a nap!
