Book Review: The Busy Life of Ernestine Buckmeister
Author: Linda Lodding
Illustrated by: Suzanne Beaky
Picture Book Ages 4-8
Ernestine Buckmeister is a very busy girl. She has an activity for every day of the week on top of going to school. Ernestine is so busy she can barely think. What happens when she just stops to play?
This action packed picture book is a fun story about an over booked child. Her parents think they are providing her with valuable life lessons, yet Ernestine just wants to jump and play. Parents and kids will love this fun description of all the activities filling the days for Ernestine and they will equally enjoy seeing the results when Ernestine takes time to play with her friends.
The book is entertaining but also offers food for thought on just how we plan our time with our children. What is important to you and your child? The story will be read over and over again bringing an opportunity for frank discussions about what activities matter and what can be changed or eliminated.
Take time to read this with your child today. You will be glad for the moments shared.
