    BIG KIDS DON T NEED A BINKY or so says the big girl in this cheery orange book by Maria van Lieshout.BYE BYE BINKY is actually the second book from Ms Lieshout this year The first was on that other area that can vex both big and small potty training Like I USE THE POTTY this book approaches the topic from a celebratory and positive theme You aren t so much leaving the binky and diapers behind, as you are moving on to bigger and better things.BYE BYE BINKY begins with a baby crying Our narrator then talks about the many reasons why she and other babies cry When they re hungry, upset, tired and the solution to that was The Binky She admits that she loved her binky but quickly adds that she doesn t have it any At this point we have a divergence from the approach Lieshout took in the potty book In that latter case the book spent time pointing out What Big Kids Do In this book though the author addresses the comfort that a binkie provides, and she has her character give suggestions for what other children can do when they think they need comforting and the binky Which our extended family calls a dow All of these suggestions really boil down to a theme that many parents and caregivers are busy promoting anyway That is that children should use their words So instead of crying, our heroine suggests kids ask for a hug, or a snack Or if those things aren t quite right they can snuggle with what Dr Brazelton calls a lovey So two elements working for us in this book Growing up and being like BIG kids, and Using Our Words.SUMMARYA bright and colorful book, I am so glad that the main character isn t white I know when my first born was at the leave the binky stage I had a difficult time making sure that there were plenty of diversity presented in the books we shared Fortunately authors and publishers have worked to fix this problem.I thought the concept of being a Big Kid wasn t as thoroughly emphasized as in Lieshout s potty book And I was disappointed that there wasn t as much humor either Still, this is a useful book that could very well be used in almost any sort of anti binky campaign review copy

    Digital illustrations accompany brief text as youngsters learn how to let go of their favorite blanket Although I like the idea of helping young ones grow up with confidence and transition from needing a binky for comfort to mature actions such as needing a hug, I m not so sure I like the idea that letting go of the comfort object as part of maturing is the way to go I would imagine the main character in this small board book would still feel as though she s missing her comfort object It isn t as easy to let go as the book seems to indicate Still, the idea behind the Big Kid Power is a good one.

    Nothing mind blowing, but a good, short choice for encouraging a kid or supporting an effort to ditch the binky I like that it offered other ways to soothe your emotions instead of just you re a big kid now, get over it.

    I like the concept of this book and the illustrations The only thing I didn t like was how the girl gave her binky away to another baby That s gross I know this is just a story, but I didn t like that I wouldn t want my kid thinking that s an okay thing to do.

    Bye Bye Binky is all about getting kids to stop using the binky When she was a baby, she would get tired, hungry, unhappy, or cannot sleep Her parents would give her a binky And it worked She calmed down and, if tired, went to sleep with less difficulty Then the no binky day arrived It was time for this big kid and her parents to let go of this safety blanket and learn to find comfort in other ways As a big kid, she can now ask for hugs, cuddle her stuffed animal, snuggle the dog, or ask for something to eat when hungry The binky goes to another baby Why Because SHE IS A BIG KID This type of book is not new Authors have been writing about growing up and all that entails, but this series gives the power to the child As the narrator, and he or she proudly .To Read the Full Review and View Interior Spreads, Go To

    Great book to help a little one deal with the transition to life without a pacifier I liked the short, simple text as well as in the inclusion of a main character who is not Caucasian The Big Kid Power series was developed to help encourage children as they near the brink of major changes and milestones.
