Nowadays, we find that one of the most difficult places to combat excessive consumerism is with today’s kids. In the marketing industry today, advertisers spend millions of dollars and employ highly trained teams of child psychologists who convince our children to constantly desire more. Some youth advertisers actually call parents “gatekeepers” whom they must circumvent to reach the kids. Of course we’re gatekeepers! We’re parents! It’s our job to protect, nurture, and help our children grow into healthy, confident, and caring adults. Fortunately, there are many ways to do this, even in our material-oriented culture.
The lesson of this book is best expressed in this inspirational quote by George Carlin :"Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body."

This story may be ideal for reading to your kids at bedtime and enjoyable for the whole family as well! It is suitable as a read aloud book for preschoolers or a self-read book for older children.
