With a new baby in my home, and the holidays here, I couldn't resist reviewing Hay House's latest children's book...

I just finished reading Chris P. Bacon My Life So Far... to my five year old son. At first he wasn't too sure about it. He's into Ninjago and other action heroes these days. So I brought up the youtube video that shows the little piglet learning to walk using the wheels his veterinarian caretaker fashioned for him. (Chris was born without the use of his hind legs.) Halfway through the video, my son was ready, and wanted me to read him the book. The story held his attention. He was fascinated by the colorful artwork, and is sleeping with the book now. Older children will probably enjoy this book as well. It's a cute, fun story with bright, beautifully illustrated pictures. It also has a nice message, in that it shows young kids how a disability doesn't have to stop you from moving forward in life, you just adjust your approach and think positive. I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
