Must-Have Marvin! {Children's Book Review & Giveaway!}

I am so blessed to be able to share with you yet another Shine Bright Kids book! 

Must-Have Marvin is the second book in the Can't-Wait Willow series. Out of all the children books I have reviewed, this series is by far my favorite! 

"Marvin loves new things, he especially loves finding the latest, greatest, most awesome new things! Soon Marvin finds himself focusing on a new toy 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. "

Many children- even us adults- let "toys" distract us from relationships! It really is a sweet story to read with your little ones. Although it is recommended for ages 4-8, even my 2 and 3 year old sat through the entire book. Just like Can't-Wait Willow, it has a precious little star to find on every page. I have to give a shout out to Luanne Marten for the delightful illustrations. Illustrating is a huge part of a children's books and my kids loved it. 

In keeping it real, I did change the last line when reading the book. Marvin says, "The only thing I really have to HAVE are friends." We teach our kids the only thing they really have to have is JESUS. :) so we read.. "the only thing we have to have is JESUS!" Other than that, it is a wonderful book I fully recommend it for your little one to enjoy!
