Must Have Marvin Book Review And A Giveaway




I love to read books to my younger boys that teach lessons. My boys enjoy their stories at bedtime and always remind me before bedtime. Reading books before bedtime not only is a great way for my boys to unwind but it gives them something to think about as they fall asleep. Must Have Marvin written by Christy Ziglar is a wonderful book that my boys enjoyed. The lesson taught in the book even taught me a lesson that I pondered on that night as I fell asleep. I realized that I need to place more importance on friendships than things. I thought of ways I could spend more time with my family and friends.


About Must-Have Marvin!
The second title in the Shine Bright Kids series, Must-Have Marvin! teaches children that people are more important than things.
Marvin loves new things—he especially loves finding the latest, greatest, most awesome new things! Soon Marvin finds himself focusing on a new robot that he wants, to the exclusion of his friends. He lets them down when they need his help and nearly loses their friendship. 
Through a chat with a wise neighbor and a second chance to help, Marvin learns the important life lesson that people are more important than things.


My 5 year old was looking at the book after it arrived to our house.
